Following Twitter’s “Coming soon to Twitter” post from December last year, the social media giant has announced that they will be rolling out two of the various proposals made within the article today. Firstly, it is now possible to hold group conversations privately without it being sprawled all over the feeds of others, which essentially minimizes the risk of receiving a barrage of negative replies — because as we all know, one slip-up on such a platform and it tends to get ugly. Twitter states on their blog, “The home timeline is a great place to have conversations but it’s also a place to find great conversation starters.”

The next improvement is the platform’s implementation of their very own video camera and inline editing tools. Designed as a compatible application to run alongside Twitter itself, the new video service has been simplified enough to allow you to capture important moments as they happen and instantly communicate them through your profile. As well as having the option to upload photographs and videos on the fly, you are also able to upload at least 30 seconds of content directly from your phone’s camera roll.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below and head on over to Twitter’s blog for more on both the direct messages and video camera. Will the infamous “Twitter warfare” take on a new dynamic?
