The popular microblogging platform, Twitter, keeps growing with new application updates. Announced on the official blog, Twitter now has the special features of Group DMs and a native video service.

Twitter opens up new spaces for users to interact with each other and group messages seem to be the right thing for that. Now you can send direct messages up to 20 people at the same time, and it doesn’t matter if your recipients follow each other or not!


Second new feature added to the platform is Twitter’s own video service. Twitter helps you to shoot and edit videos without leaving the app. Just like Twitter’s photo service, you can also upload videos directly from your camera roll. (If you are an iPhone user…)

The fun part comes with Neil Patrick Harris’ first-ever mobile video!

You can check out the promo for Twitter’s new feature:

Keep in mind that Twitter videos are limited to 30 seconds.
