Re: VIDEO
Good point, the possibilities increase by the use of video, but at the same time, limitations are also created. For example, users have a very good idea of the current level of CGI capabilities and if the graphics are lacking then, users might think that the video contains information that is outdated. This problem is further compounded by the fact that videos cannot be edited and updated with newly researched data, unless the sources files are available.

Re: VIDEO
Agreed. I hope the ease witth which video can be introduced now doesn't supplant text based information, as it's simply a better resource for certain things and can allow you to learn in different ways than a video can. 

Sometimes, being able to read and reread the same bit of information in your own time and at your own pace can be very important.

Re: VIDEO
@Brian that's the way I see it. I even skip recipes that are only presented in video format rather than written out. I can understand some people wanting to see a certain technique illustrated, but I'd still rather have all the info in text available.

TWITTER VIDEO ADVERTISEMENT
This will make TWITTER more popular among business persons as well as common people. Twitter is becoming more visual now a day. The policy of pay is excellent (whne you click pay, then the advertiser have to pay for the video ad). I am waiting for the success of twitter ad. Very recent i heard about another exciting feature of twitter, twitter alert

Re: VIDEO
@Ariella, agreed. Articles and documentation are better at communicating the value behind a product and/or service. Videos can also be good, sometimes a computer generated video is important to illustrate the model of a product, but then again, the video would need to be backed by documentations for further research and reviews.

Re: VIDEO
I like that the ads aren't auto-play. That's probably my biggest complaint with Facebook's video ads (even though you can set them not to play unless you're connected to wifi). Tends to make my phone run small when I scroll past one that starts playing.

Keep it discreet
Well at least they don't auto-play. I'm just starting to see sponsored posts on Instagram -- pictures only, haven't see any videos yet. It feels like it's the beginning of the end of Instagram's run as the new cool kid. But ads are inevitable and necessary -- as long as they stay out of the foreground.

VIDEO
I can't say I'm surprised. As videos are seen to be very effective for marketers, it's now onder they want to get them on Twitter. But I don't click on video ads or even a lot of video clips used for news. I prefer articles.
