Twitter introduces Timestamps feature
MUMBAI: Twitter has introduced Timestamps which lets anyone Tweet a live or replay video starting from the exact moment they want to discuss. The social media platform that it was an easy way to Tweet that brief moment of what matters from longer, live videos.
Previously, people could only Tweet an entire live video, which made it difficult to discuss what matters most. Twitter observed that people were Tweeting with the specific time in the video directing others to the part they wanted them to watch.
Sharing Timestamps is easy. When users tap to share a live video, they can easily scroll back to the exact time you want your audience to watch. From there, they can add thoughts, and Tweet it to the world.
Anyone seeing the Tweet will start watching at the time within the video. If the broadcast is still live, they can easily skip to what’s happening by tapping “live” at any time. The feature is available for any live video, whether from a professional content publisher or someone broadcasting from their phone.
