Twitter Video Service And Group Messaging Launched

Twitter Video Service And Group Messaging Launched

In efforts to differentiate itself from Facebook and other rivals, Twitter adds a few more features to keep users engaged

Twitter recently added a few new features to make its micro-blogging platform more useful and relevant. The website added group direct messages and mobile video editing features.

Twitter wants users to connect as groups

The new direct messaging feature for groups offers the same level of privacy that traditional direct messages provide, only this time, the messages are in a shared space. This feature makes it easier for group collaborations or for family members to stay in touch without having to send the same message individually. Another bonus with the group messaging service is that users can send messages to anyone on Twitter and not just those they follow. The private conversations can include up to 20 people in a group. Users can save their groups and change the group names.
