Game on! Twitter is about to bring it. Lookout Facebook… Twitter is about to make a little tweak to its tweets that could solidify it’s spot as the number two social network! Videos and photos coming soon to your Twitter feed! What does it mean? Well, first of all, it makes Twitter a much more media-rich platform. Sure you can shoot out a URL that links you to videos/photos, but imagine your Twitterverse with tweets that are that much more engaging, interactive, and robust. It takes the 140 character tweet to the next level. Curious to see how this plays out over the coming months but look for some big changes in the way we play, interact, and how brands create conversation with their tweets. At Fifty & Five ( we’ll start integrating these new features immediately with clients such as Hugo’s Restaurant (, Fireman’s Brew (, and Club Sportiva ( The possibilities are truly endless. We’re excited for the new features to roll out!

Twitter to Show Photos and Videos in the Stream

A new Twitter setting called “Tweet Media” has rolled out to Twitter’s users, strongly suggesting that the company will soon embed videos and photos into the stream.

Tweet Media, which the Mashable team and others have been able to access under Twitter’s account settings, asks you whether or not you want to show photos and videos from everyone. It also comes with the following description of the setting:

“By default, you’ll only see images and videos shared by people you’re following, and reveal those by people you’re not. Check this box to see media from everyone on Twitter.”

It seems clear now that Twitter is about to add multimedia in the stream, which could radically change the entire Twitter experience. It doesn’t seem like the feature is active currently though, even if you activate Tweet Media in your settings.
