Twitter for iOS now supports slow motion video uploads

Twitter for iOS now supports slow motion video uploads

Slow-motion videos are awesome. On iOS, it’s a native feature of the stock camera, and you can shoot in either 120fps or 240fps. Sharing those videos was a bit annoying, though. Slo-mo videos typically played back at regular speed, so your dog eating peanut butter was a lot less funny (but still hilarious).

Twitter may be the social network where you tell the world what you had for breakfast, but new private messaging features now allow you to share it on a need-to-know basis. The support for private conversations - added to Twitter today, along with new video features that streamline the sharing of clips - builds on the social service's existing Direct Messages support, but expands them to an impromptu group of up to twenty people who needn't be following each other.
