The user must slide laterally on the timeline to access the camera. Then you can tap to take a photo or hold down the button to record a video. Live mode is in a menu at the bottom. After shooting or recording, you can add hashtags and the location. Unlike the Stories, the content is available indefinitely.
According to Twitter, the posts have a different look than usual and should draw more attention when they are posted on the timeline: images will take up more space than before, and the text will have a customizable background color.
