Twitter has just introduced two new features which should make it easier to use the service as a replacement for its main rivals Facebook and Instagram. For years Twitter users have been able to use post photos on their feeds, but video has always remained the provence of Instagram. Now Twitter has fixed this oversight with the introduction of its own video camera directly in the app, completely with editing and sharing tools. Videos can be up to 30 seconds in length, and users will be able to upload their own videos from their camera roll.

On the messaging front the app has brought users group messaging, allowing up to 20 Twitter accounts to converse together privately. Twitter has released two new video announcing these features which we've embedded below. Currently the features are being slowly rolled out to users so keep an eye out in your updates tab.
