New Twitter allows users to add photos and video

The new Twitter has just been launched its new service, where users can add photos and video on their Twitter page, as being published at CNN Money.on Tuesday.

Twitter, with 145 million users said the new features are only a part of their project to make the 140-character microblogging service be more user-friendly.

"It's faster, it's easier and it's a richer experience," Evan Williams, Twitter co-founder and CEO, said at the company's San Francisco headquarters.

"Simple things that are cryptic on Twitter today become a lot clearer." He added.

The new Twitter now features an extended sidebar that shows related content when you click on a specific Tweet.

This eventually helps users to save time and effort to toggle back and forth between different Web pages.

The company joined with 16 media providers, including Flickr and YouTube, to now allow users embed pictures and playable videos directly on

The new also includes the ability to scroll down the page without having to press a "more" button.

But so far, only a few selected groups of users, including members of the media who attended the launch event in San Francisco were given access to the new immediately.

Twitter’s top executive however, could not say yet as to when it will be available to all.
