Recording, sharing videos now possible on Twitter’s Direct Messages

New York, Feb 18 (IANS) Aiming to take Twitter to a new level amid an existential crisis, the micro-blogging website is now bringing video support to Direct Messages.

“The company keeps plugging away at basic features to bring the service up to speed with competitors like Facebook Messenger. Following the addition of a GIF button on Wednesday, Twitter is rolling out this feature globally to iOS and Android smartphones,” The Verge quoted the company as saying on Wednesday.

However, on twitter.com, user will be to send videos from within Direct Messages threads, but won’t be able to record them directly on the website.

A GIF button and a video support don’t do much to fix those longstanding issues but they may bring the website up to compete with Facebook and Google.

Recently, Twitter introduced a new timeline feature that allows users to never miss important tweets from people they follow by giving an option to see the best tweets first.

The rest of the tweets are displayed right underneath.
