Twitter is hard at work to build new features for its microblogging platform. The company has added a couple of useful new features over the course of the last few months, including the ability to remove followers without blocking them, and the good news is another new useful feature will soon be added to the microblogging platform.

According to famous reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter is currently working towards adding video playback speed options to Twitter. What this means is that Twitter users will be able to play a video at various playback speeds, including at 0.5x, 1.0x, 1.5x, 2.0x.

This will be very useful for those who want to watch something really quickly. Alternatively, those who feel what’s showing in the video is too fast can choose the 0.5x playback speed. Needless to say, these playback speeds will be available for recorded videos and live streams.

The feature is currently in the developmental phase, but it seems the company has made significant headway in developing the feature. Thanks to her reverse engineering skills, Wong has managed to get the feature working, so we’re assuming that it is in the final stages of development.
