Popular social network Twitter has just announced plans ofa number of improvements coming to the service.
In a blog post, Twitter saidthat sometime in the first half of 2015, users will be able to record, edit, and share their own videos natively on Twitter. Thats in addition to the companys Vine app.
Along with preserving the real-time nature of Twitter, the company is planning to show users a snapshot of what is happening on the service to highlight what was missed. There are also plans for a personalized timeline for users who dont want to spend time looking for followers.
Finally, direct messages will also see some improvements. Starting next week, Twitter will rollout the ability for users to share and discuss tweets natively and privately through via the direct message functionality.
Its last major update arrived back in mid-September right after the introduction of iOS 8.Version 6.13.3brought a new design for profiles, interactive notifications, and easy access to drafts while composing a message.
A long-suffering official Mac version was updated a few weeks later with the ability to view and post tweets with up to four attached images. Users can now also send and view messages in DMs.
