Twitter trying to compete with Snapchat

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (2 years, 10 months ago)

The latest update to Twitter's iOS and Android apps includes the ability to send pictures in direct messages. Whereas once pictures sent over DMs could only be viewed through an external browser window, now users can see images within the messages. The feature has also been made more prominent with the DM icon having been moved to the app navigation bar. This feature showcases Twitter's intention to become the prime messaging service for users, and can be seen to be the microblogging network's answer to Snapchat.

There has been a lot of focus on Twitter's private messaging service as of late, which had long been overshadowed by the social network's public platform. With Twitter already taking on Facebook and Instagram as competitors, this latest challenge to Snapchat comes as no surprise.
