Twitter Plans To Add Live Video Tweeting

twitterTwitter plans to add video tweeting to its mobile microblogging platform.

According to a story in the  Telegraph:

Twitter users may soon be posting real-time video tweets in addition to text tweets under plans to modernize the site.

Twitter’s founders hope by adding live video-tweeting it will help boost its prominence as a fashionable social-networking tool again.

Other short form video sites have failed to gain much traction – but the rise of smart phones, combined with Twitter’s popularity, could give the site a better opportunity for success as a real-time video blogging platform.

Do you think Twitter can succeed where others have failed?

Update: Twitter’s Biz Stone denies the rumor:

Haven’t read the piece but no video hosting. 140 characters of text including spaces. You know the drill!

  1. If Twitter doesn't try it, someone will. But how long would it allow? One minute? Fifteen seconds? There's a big difference between trying to convey an idea visually and typing a few lines.

    I think Twitter has already proved themselves as a major player in today's media. Not just socially but as a serious content provider.
