The Twitter camera feature will also be helpful for brands who are looking for to stand out among their competitors.

The one thing that will be widely appreciated by the Twitter users is the ability to record two minutes long videos which can be captured by holding the shutter button. Twitter has also offered video or audio-only live broadcasts option which can be used by the users accordingly.
