Two new big features have launched on Twitter making it the ideal time to make sure you are taking advantage of Superfast Broadband (check here at www.superfaststaffordshire.co.uk to see if your area is enabled)
This week Twitter rolled out two new features that are big news for anyone involved in business, and wanting to engage their audiences.
New Twitter Feature number 1 – Now you can Tweet a video
You can Tweet fully produced videos (up to 30 seconds long).
Up until now, the closest you have had to this is a 6 second looping Twine – which were very ‘finicky’ to make and very limiting.
But now you can tweet videos – which can be promotional videos, product examples, short interviews, case studies, testimonials, or even events and news as they happen – example below.

Note this feature is only available through the mobile version of twitter (so for example on an iPhone, iPad or android phone or tablet)
New Feature number 2 – Group Messaging
You can now direct message up to 20 people at once – so you can create groups of related followers, and they do not need to be following each other – so perhaps good for communicating specific messages to a group of journalists, stakeholders, or other related group.
Best of all the conversation can then continue just with that group of people.
This is also only available through the mobile version of twitter OR the desktop or browser version of TWEETDECK if any of you use that
Example of this feature here – http://youtu.be/XNnVH-mwSdM
How to get the New Twitter features
Note to get any of these feature you will have to be running latest version of Twitter and latest operating system for your mobile device – so in other words you will need to update your apps.
