Twitter Introduces Easier Method for Sharing Specific Clips From Live Videos

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Twitter this week updated its iOS and Android apps with a new feature called “Timestamps,” which the company said will make it easier to share brief moments from longer live videos.

Previously, Twitter users had to direct their followers to specific time codes in a live video so that people knew which moment they were referring to. The Timestamps update is a direct response to that, according to product lead for Periscope Mike Folgner.


Now, when users tap the share sheet extension on a live video, Twitter displays a playback track that they can scrub through to find the exact moment they want their followers to watch. Then they can tap the “new tweet” button, type in any commentary on the video clip, and press “tweet.” The clips can also be sent via direct message or copied and shared through a link.

So, we built Timestamps which lets anyone Tweet a live or replay video starting from the exact moment they want to discuss.

People have always used Twitter to talk about the things they experience. With Timestamps, now we can show rather than just tell everyone what’s happening.

People who see the tweet will be able to watch the specific moment shared within, and if the broadcast is still live they can skip forward in time by tapping “live.” Folgner said the feature is available across all live videos, “whether from a professional content publisher or someone broadcasting from their phone.”

Timestamps are available now on Twitter for iOS [Direct Link] and Android, Twitter.com, and Periscope.

Twitter today introduced Timestamps, which allows users to share both live videos and recorded ones from a certain point. It’s essentially the same as the timestamp option on YouTube’s share button. Timestamps roll out today for the iOS and Android apps, as well as Periscope. According to Twitter, it implemented this feature in response to users’ frequently tweeting a whole video with a number indicating where in the video they wanted the viewers to start.

Amazon, Tesla, Netflix, Facebook, Google and Twitter stocks dropped this week

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

It’s been a bad week to be a tech company.

Major tech stocks are down this week. Amazon, Tesla, Netflix Facebook, Google and Twitter have all taken a dive for various reasons.

Tesla plummeted 15 percent after the National Transportation Safety Board announced it was investigating a fatal crash that happened on March 23 in California. It is not yet known if the vehicle was operating in Tesla’s autonomous mode, which led to a fatal crash in 2016.

Amazon is down 5 percent after a report said that President Trump has a “deep-seated antipathy toward Amazon” and might want the e-commerce giant to pay more in taxes, or find a way to break it up.

Facebook’s stock is at an eight-month low after the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal, which could lead to regulation of the social network. At least three different congressional committees have asked CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on how Facebook protects user data.

Twitter’s stock is down about 8 percent this week for several reasons, including the prospect that Twitter might also be summoned to Washington about its data practices. Short seller Citron Research said Tuesday it was concerned with how important Twitter’s data licensing business, Gnip, is to its bottom line.

Netflix and Google are also down, 5 percent and 1 percent, respectively.
