Audio Review #93 | Twitter Now Allows You to Tweet Video and Photos From Your Phone!

Overview

I think basically everyone knows about twitter now, but you may not know that twitter has recently come out with a new feature that makes tweeting more fun.  You can now tweet video!  You have to have the app on your mobile device to make this work but all you need to do is pretend that you are sending out a photo, but when you get to your photos, choose the camera and switch to video.  Then hold down the record button, film your video and send it out for the world to see.

Concerns

The concerns are the same as with any time you are sending out personal information on the internet so be sure to think before you post that video that you think is funny, but your boss/friend/colleague may not.

Sample Uses

If you use twitter with your class this is an awesome way to send out announcements or give a quick peak into what is going on in your classroom.  Say, for example, you are having a poetry celebration, parents would be far more entertained if the class requested they come and listen through a video than if they did so in a written tweet.

Do I plan to use it?

I think so… I just need to find something to video…
