Twitter truly seems to be working hard at rolling out new features, as they’ve made two announcements. Users will now be able to record and share video through Direct Messages on Twitter.
The new feature will begin rolling out today to iOS and Android. Users will be able to send videos from twitter.com; but, they won’t be able to record them.
This comes after news prior that Twitter would now have a GIF search button for users when creating a tweet. This feature is also rolling out beginning to Android, iOS, and twitter.com.

For those that are wondering, the Twitter UWA (universal Windows application) was not said. Just Android, iOS, and twitter.com was specified in either announcement.
Allowing videos to be recorded and sent through Direct Messages is a clear play to carry Twitter Direct Messages comparable to Facebook Messenger. Twitter has also been contemplating allowing users to tweet more than 140 characters at a time and additionally a news feed that is not in chronological order.
Both are features that Facebook have had for quite a while. Twitter even turned top picks into likes.
Twitter is going to keep on announce new features as time advances. Its a well known fact that Twitter is looking for answers to an issue, and they have to make changes.
