No, Video Tweets Not Coming to Twitter

On Sunday, the Telegraph posted a story that stated that Twitter was about to introduce video tweeting. However, it looks like this can be filed under unfounded rumor, as noted by a quote from Twitter founder Biz Stone.

In fact, the Telegraph story is pretty sparse, mostly being about Twitter in general and some high-profile celebrities who have left of late (such as Miley Cyrus). The functionality, if implemented, would have duplicated the features of third party sites Twiddeo and Tweetube which allow Twitter users to post video tweets by creating links to their own sites.

Here's what Biz Stone told Mashable via email today:
Haven’t read the piece but no video hosting. 140 characters of text including spaces. You know the drill!
It's something that developers creating apps for Twitter have to worry about, that Twitter will embrace something they've done, thus ending the reason for their third-party service. At least in this case, it appears they can breathe easy.

Twitter is struggling to keep up. Every now and then its servers overload (mostly due to people running contests who ask entrants to tweet their company hashtags as many times as possible).
