It's every smart and social, savvy digital marketers dream to reach their audience in a human, relevant, memorable and meaningful way. Video marketing provides marketers with one of the best opportunities to connect with their audience in just this manner.
With video marketing, you can almost look your audience in the face, eyeball-to-eyeball. They can hear your voice, they can see your facial gestures - your viewers get to experience where you are and the power of what you have to share with them like never before. And through Twitter video, you can share your story and engage others to join your journey via 140 character tweets and 30 second live and candid video clips.
Are you an active user of Twitter? Did you know that you can now, within one minute, record and upload a video to Twitter natively that will engage, inspire, educate and entertain your audience?
Yes, one minute.
Simply record up to 30-seconds of video, craft a simple 140 character tweet and hit the "tweet" button. Plus, you can see the response and statistics within seconds. You'll almost instantaneously know how many people saw the tweet, engaged with the tweet, watched the video, shared the video and more.

I hadn't done much with Twitter video until Gary Vaynerchuk sent me a personal video using Twitter. It literally took me experiencing a personal and engaging video from Gary to inspire me to pick up my iPhone and send and share my first Twitter video that same day with my audience and community - thank you, Gary
