Twitter has done very well for itself since launching in 2006 and hasn't changed much about its platform since then. But now, the social media site is updating its features to give users new ways to communicate with friends, fans and followers.
Recently, Twitter announced that it will be changing up the Direct Message. Instead of privately messaging one follower, soon you'll be able to start private group discussions with up to 20 other people. You can add any of your followers to a private discussion, and they'll receive a notification when they're added to the group.
Twitter will also be introducing a new video feature to users. In the near future, all Twitter users will be able to capture, edit and post videos to their account right through the Twitter app. iPhone users will also be able to post videos from their camera roll to Twitter.
In order to promote the new video feature, Twitter debuted it early to actor Neil Patrick Harris. The Oscar host created the first mobile video tweet ever to give followers some breaking news about this year's Academy Awards.

These new features won't be available right away for all users. Twitter will be rolling them out over the next few weeks.
