Twitter in two minds over autoplaying videos on users' timeline

Washington: Social networking site Twitter is reportedly in two minds over autoplaying videos on its users' timeline.

According to The Verge, Twitter is said to be "cautious" about implementing autoplay, but the service already makes heavy use of video.

Facebook and Instagram have already introduced the new autoplay feature.

While some Facebook users were not happy with the new feature initially, it went on to become a hit, boosting Facebook's advertising business.

Earlier this year, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo had said that improvements to video were high on the company's agenda list and also hinted at a variety of other additions.
