Twitter launches group messages, 30-second video sharing

Twitter has begun rolling out new group chat and video features as it worked to ramp up use of the one-to-many messaging service.

“Private conversations on Twitter are a great complement to the largely public experience on the platform,” product director Jinen Kamdar, whose handle is @jinen, said in an online post.

“The group function lets you start conversations with any of your followers and they don’t all need to follow one another in order to chat.”

Twitter allows users to send direct messages to one another; the new feature expands that capability to allow shared exchanges involving as many as 20 people, according to Kamdar.

The Twitter application for smartphones has also been modified to allow people to easily capture, edit and share videos. The new feature allows for sharing of videos 30-seconds or less in length.
