Twitpic has made it even easier to get your videos onto Twitter, announcing video support directly within the platform.

What this means is, when your drunk pal falls down the stairs in your local, or your cute little nephew tries to eat a whole lemon in one go, you'll be able to grab the footage and get it onto the microblogging network quick-snap, without the bother of uploading it to YouTube and creating a link.

It'll also be handy for more important issues, such as front line citizen reporting for breaking news events.

Speaking to lovers of all things social media, Mashable, Twitpic founder Noah Everett said: "Users will be able to upload video from the site itself, email, and clients that support the new video option.

"Everything else basically works the same. We’re trying to be a one-stop-shop for users to share their media on Twitter in real-time."

To start with thumbnails will still show on Twitter, but the idea is to get the videos themselves actually embedded within the platform.

Twitpic has around 17 million users and is growing at a rate of 30,000 users per day - so expect to see a vast amount of video action hitting Twitter soon.
