Twitter testing video and photos features for its site

July 29, 2010

Micro blogging website Twitter is apparently testing inline videos and photos. It is planning so after enabling location based updates. Twitter was also reported to be testing a new setting called Twitter Media for a couple of hours with select people. This setting would allow users to view photos and videos in their stream.

Several services exist with their own version of URLshortner. At times watching photos and videos from the links shared on Twitter can be a menace. The user has to leave the page and go to the site where photo or video is posted. Twitter is testing inline multimedia viewing feature to solve this issue.
Twitter has in a statement said, ‘’We’re constantly exploring features and settings. What you saw was a small test of a potential consumption setting for inline media. We show inline media on our own iPhone and Android apps’’. To a few users this feature was made available only for a short period of time. It isn’t online for everyone at the moment. .Multimedia showing Twitter stream will be a great experience for the users especially for hand held devices.
