  • Twitter not just for words

The design isn't finalized and no debut timing was revealed, but the feature now involves a camera-focused tool that makes it easier to post videos on Twitter. In the past, she has praised the Snapchat app calling it "very modern" and admitting that Twitter can be "confusing". The report claims that the company is developing a Snapchat-like tool to popularize video sharing on its network and bring in more users.

Twitter hasn't commented on the report and it's unclear right now if and when these changes will go live.

Snapchat now allows sharing on other social media
Even more annoying is the fact that the new design forces users to tap a preview of the next person's Story before it is shown. This merger would permit users to share their stories on the applications like Twitter and Facebook .

Apparently Twitter has a working demo of the product, but the design has not been finalized.

While Snapchat app opens first to a camera, allowing users to see photo and video messages from friends with just a swipe, Twitter app users need to click the compose button, find the camera button, take the video or picture and then click on the tweet button to publish. Then, of course, Tweeters have to decide to share what they've captured or written and actually send that Tweet out into the world. The process requires several taps, and Bloomberg says the new camera product will address this by reducing the number of steps.

'Perfect' Singer Engaged to Childhood Friend Cherry Seaborn
The singer made the announcement via his official Instagram account, writing: "Got myself a fiance just before new year". Despite their different career paths, the pair came together in 2015 when they bumped into each other in a bar in NY .

Since this new camera feature would come on the heels of the, it looks like Twitter is looking for more ways to enable their users to create dynamic content - a decided shift from the minimalist, text-only 140 character count capabilities of yore. By lifting the restriction on where its content is seen, Snapchat will undoubtedly appeal to more users - especially those who just want to consume content, and who may find Snapchat's UI a tad too hard to comprehend. This follows CEO Jack Dorsey's idea to make Twitter a platform for "what's happening now".

Twitter planning to update its app for iOS and Android devices to make the camera more accessible.
