In a long overdue move, Twitter has finally launched group direct messages and native video sharing. Although this may have seemed like an obvious omission for users, they will be very forgiving now that the option has been made available. What makes the group direct message feature even more exciting is the ability to start a conversation with followers that don't follow each other.

As for video sharing, Twitter will now allow people to capture, share and edit videos up to 30 seconds long by using the app's camera button. Significantly longer than the 6 second looped videos on Twitter's Vine service, it will still ensure users remain succinct when using this new feature. Together with group direct messages, Tweeting just became more convenient.
