Coming soon to Twitter: 3 game-changing updates in the pipeline

Twitter’s VP of product, Kevin Weil, says there are three big updates in the works for Twitter.

native video shooting and editing

aside from just watching video more easily on Twitter, you should be able to record, edit and share your own videos natively on Twitter too. Alongside short looping Vine videos, we think you’ll have fun sharing what’s happening in your world through native video. You can expect to see this in the first half of next year.

filters for surfacing relevant tweets

we’re exploring ways to surface relevant Tweets so the content that is interesting to you is easy to discover – whether you stay on Twitter all day or visit for a few minutes – while still preserving the real-time nature of the platform that makes Twitter special.

One way of doing that would be a snapshot of what’s happening: Twitter can use information like who you follow and what you engage with to surface highlights of what you missed and show those to you as soon as you log back in or come back to the app.

Twitter is also working on ideas such as an instant, personalized timeline for new users who don’t want to spend time cultivating one on their own.

updates to direct messaging

We have several updates coming that will make it easy to take a public conversation private. The first of these was announced today and will begin rolling out next week: the ability to share and discuss Tweets natively and privately via Direct Messages.
