Twitter makes changes to conversations

Have you ever found it difficult to follow conversation streams on Twitter when several people are involved? Sometimes it can be hard to work out who said what when and in what order.

Twitter has recognised that problem and is making changes to the way conversations are displayed. Now, conversations are grouped together. The social network has brought out a short video showing how the new system works. It looks like a big improvement to us.

Instagram launches 15-second video rival

The Facebook-owned Instagram has launched its own version of the successful Vine video app. Instead of being six seconds, though, users can shoot 15-second videos.

The usual Instagram filters are available so video makers can touch up their creations to make them look more pretty. You can see our first play with it (a tour of the Status Social office) here.
