Twitter News Camera

Twitter is testing a Snapchat-like feature which may be called Twitter News Camera. The feature would let users add captions to photos, videos and live broadcasts.

Posts made by News Camera, may be called Moments. Previously scrapped Moments would enable users to slideshow tweets like Stories. Moments was removed from iOS and Android apps in October.

Recently, Twitter has also been testing new features on iOS like improved night mode, react with GIF, end-to-end encryption and more.

Additionally, Twitter has been reportedly keeping messages shared on the platform which includes deleted messages from deactivated or suspended accounts too along with the data shared and received.

Karan Saini, a security researcher found old messages in a file from an archive obtained via websites from accounts that were not on Twitter anymore. A similar bug was found a year ago but not disclosed until now that allowed him to retrieve messages, even the ones deleted from the sender and receiver.

A Twitter spokesperson told TechCrunch that the company was “looking into this further to ensure we have considered the entire scope of the issue.”
