Converse with a group, privately

"Private conversations on Twitter are a great complement to the largely
public experience on the platform. You might prefer to read (or watch)
Tweets but converse about them privately. You might want to continue a
public conversation privately with a smaller group, or start one based on a
Tweet you saw. Many of you use Direct Messages to reach the people and
brands you’re only connected to on Twitter. Whatever the case may be, the
ability to converse privately with groups gives you more options for how
and with whom you communicate on Twitter.

The group function lets you start conversations with any of your followers
and they don’t all need to follow one another in order to chat. You can
create a group in just a few taps. When you’re added to a group, you’ll get
a notification."

Capture, edit and share videos right from your Twitter app

Tweets have been more than 140 characters for some time. The Twitter you
experience today is rich and immersive, full of images, gifs, Vines, audio
files and videos from some of the world’s most recognizable figures and
brands. And starting today, everyone will soon be able to seamlessly
capture, edit and share videos right from the Twitter app, too."


I wonder if this could work for us - the private group messaging means that
social media wg members can work with Ariel privately without using tools
like Slack for private messaging.

There is still a need for tools like Social Sprout to allow for group
members to more manage the At-Large Social Media acct during F2F meetings,
