To make that easier for broadcasters, Twitter is unearthing Curator, which has been in a kind of beta program until today. With Curator, those who distribute all types of content will be able to populate a Twitter feed alongside their feed, pulling the audience at home into the world of published content.

Vine Kids brings curated, looping videos just for your little ones

Vine Kids brings curated,  looping videos just for your little ones

There are some universal truths about kids and the media they consume. Kids love flashy, colorful stuff, and they adore repetition. That’s what makes the news that Vine has created ‘Vine for Kids’ so endearing. The new app culls kid-friendly vines from the service proper, then makes them available to the kids! A swipe left or right brings a new Vine, and a tap on the screen lets loose “quirky” sounds. For now, Vine Kids is only available on iOS devices.

Twitter adds group messaging and 30s videos

Twitter adds group messaging and 30s videos

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. It's the company's response to wildly popular instant messaging clients like Facebook-owned Whatsapp.

Twitter for Windows Phone lets Cortana in on tweeting

Twitter for Windows Phone lets Cortana in on tweeting

The official Twitter for Windows Phone app has been updated, adding Cortana integration for tweeting by voice, and improving how links browsed on your phone can be shared socially. The latest version, for Windows Phone 8.1 devices only, now allows users to tell Cortana - Microsoft's virtual personal assistant, aka Siri for Windows Phone - to fire out a 140 character message without having to tap it in themselves. It's a welcome improvement, though it remains to be seen whether Windows Phone fans, jaded by the ongoing token saga crippling third-party Twitter clients, will warm to the software.

Details emerge about Twitter’s video service to rival YouTube

Details emerge about Twitter’s video service to rival YouTube

Back in November, Twitter confirmed that it would be launching its own video service akin to YouTube as part of its growth strategy. While a launch date wasn't specified, other than sometime in the first half of 2015, details about the service were skim to say the least. That is until recently, when Twitter user Daniel Raffel noticed a FAQ page for the video service was already available, revealing a number of details including file types supported and just how it plans to directly compete with YouTube.

Twitter may copy Facebook, make features into apps

Twitter may copy Facebook, make features into apps

Some like to poke fun at Facebook for making several impressions on our devices. We’ve got Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, Paper (for iPhone users, at least), WhatsApp — it’s a lot. At their “Analyst Day” soiree, Twitter is teasing that they may do just the same. Executives at Twitter told analysts they were working on improving their direct messaging service, and were very high “applications that can live outside of Twitter”. The microblogging platform may also get a “best of” feature to show you what cool things you might have missed, and will get some interesting video features.

Twitter testing docked video player, just like audio cards

Twitter testing docked video player, just like audio cards

Twitter seems to have a new service in the works, wherein videos you launch would be docked at the bottom of the screen while you continue to scroll your feed. The feature looks a lot like YouTube for mobile, where the playing video simply finds a home on the bottom of the screen while you go on about your business. This compliments a previously announced (and official) Twitter service in audio cards, which play music shared via the microblogging platform in a player docked at the bottom of the screen.

Vine update lets you use Vine — without using Vine

Vine update lets you use Vine — without using Vine

Vine is a viral video fan’s dream come true. Six seconds, and typically funny, the videos still have one major caveat: they need to be captured within the Vine app. That’s a hurdle some aren’t navigating, which keeps them from uploading content. In an effort to bulk up their platform, Vine is letting users sidestep shooting in-app, and will now let us upload content we’ve already shot.
