Normally, Twitter allows us to Tweet maximum of 140 characters. When we come across any Tweet and if we want to respond to that, then we are restricted to 140 characters only. If we want to say more, we would divide it in to multiple tweets. Some step ahead and chooses private messaging. So, that you can talk to that particular person in private and there is no limit in number of characters. But, what if you want to share the same thing with others on Twitter? You cannot keep on private messaging everyone, right? So, now you can use Group Direct Messages on Twitter as a new feature. Twitter also introduces video editing and sharing. Let us have a look at them.
