Twitter recently announced two new features to the popular social media platform. Video and group direct messaging. You can now share video with your tweets (beyond just Vine videos) and you can also direct message groups of people rather than just single individuals.
With video sharing, you can use the Twitter app to shoot and edit the video, and then load it as part of a Tweet. Videos can be up to 30 seconds long and you can even string together multiple video snippets. It adds a whole new dimension to the 140 character text tweets and closes the gap on Facebook and other social media sites which include video.

With group direct messaging, you can send a private message to a group of individuals on Twitter that you select, rather than just one person at a time. The feature allows better messaging options when you are trying to communicate with a group.
