Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) now makes it possible for you to shoot videos in landscape frame in addition to the square mode that has always been the standard. The company is not disbanding square mode shooting, but has retained it for those who desire to shoot in portrait frames. Twitter has enabled the in-app landscape shooting mode for both Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iOS and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android platform.

For Twitter, landscape video frames will enable users to have an expanded view of their world, and that is exactly what the company is promoting by enabling the mode on its platform. Whether you are an iOS or Android fan, you are in to do more with your camera for videos you want to post on Twitter.

Expanded view

For so long, Twitter only allowed square video frames, which wasn’t a serious limitation, but as it has appropriately said, that didn’t allow an expanded view of the world.

Shooting landscape videos on Twitter

What you need to shoot landscape video within the Twitter app is hold your device in a horizontal position after you activate the app and the camera. Keep your finger on the camera icon to record the material you want.

Enriching multimedia offering

The landscape video frame is just another of the enrichments that Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) has been trying to implement on its platform to bolster its multimedia offerings. The company tapped Periscope, a live-streaming app, to support live video broadcast on the microblogging site and encourage its central idea of real-time interaction.

To expand its user base and excite advertisers, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) has been gradually shifting from being a majorly text-based social network to one rich in multimedia features.

The drive to more video and multimedia implementations is also another strategy for Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) to remain competitive. Rival apps, such as Snapchat, are also bolstering their video renderings, raising competition for an audience in the social media space.
