It's unlikely that Twitter will ever rival YouTube, which uploads 20 hours of video every minute, but a number of companies are determined to make it easier for users to express themselves on the microblogging site.
The website is easily navigated, users can log in with their Twitter credentials and Tweet a video link with an accompanying message from the homepage.
TwitVid's co-founder Chrys Bader said the company is modelling itself after the popular TwitPic website, which has gained notoriety from celebrity use and the recent first person account of the Hudson River airplane crash, which beat newspapers to the crunch.
Twiddeo, currently under public beta, builds on the same idea as TwitVid, but allows users to upload videos directly from their webcams, which TwitVid plans on developing soon.
Twitmatic allows users to search through videos on Twitter by asking "What do you want to watch right now?".
The results are based on keywords in Twitter messages and users can crawl through results either by reading the text or previewing the videos.
The website allows users to watch videos being uploaded to the site in real-time and also ranks popular trends.
