Twitter group messages have arrived at LAST!

Another excuse to spend even more time on there


Twitter has finally upgraded it's direct messaging features and you can now have a group chat with up to 20 people, just like with WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

In just a few taps, you can start a conversation with multiple people and if you're added to a group, you'll get a notification. Plus, not everyone has to follow each other to be added to a group.

Announcing the news in a blog post, Twitter explains: "The ability to converse privately with groups gives you more options for how and with whom you communicate on Twitter."


But there's MORE (ooh). Twitter have also changed their video function, meaning you can film, edit and share video clips of up to 30 seconds.
"Our unique mobile video camera and inline editing experience lets you capture and share videos up to 30 seconds in an instant. Twitter for iPhone users will be able to upload videos from the camera roll as well (a feature that will be available on our Android app soon)."

And what better way to launch their new video function than with this exclusive 2015 Oscars sneak peek from this year's host, Neil Patrick Harris:
