Twitter Introduces Updated Camera Feature

While it may be convenient, Twitter is late to the game again.

Twitter is introducing a new camera feature to it’s official app. But don’t get too excited expecting filters that turn you into some hodgepodge of man and puppy. No, this new feature is simply a bit of efficiency, if you’re already in the app.

The new camera feature is a simplified button. Tapping the button takes a photo. Pressing it takes a video. A periscope live stream is also readily available when switching cameras.

Twitter teased the new feature in a short video, obviously not taken with the new feature.

The new feature will be rolling out to all Android and iOS users this week.

With this new feature, Twitter continues it’s trend of bringing new features that people are simply not asking for.
