Drones capable of taking photos and videos controlled by tweets and sharing them through users’ accounts may soon change the way people use social media, according to media reports.

The tech giant was last week granted a patent for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which can be guided by likes, retweets and replies, and may also have telepresence and live video interview capabilities, American technology news and media network The Verge reported on Monday.

Although Twitter did not provide any information on the rollout plans for the device, a company spokesman said “Two words: Drone selfies” while describing the new technology, according to CNBC.

Earlier this year, Twitter launched its live-streaming app Periscope. It is now a possibility that the company may use the app in tandem with drones to capture and broadcast events with Periscope users controlling the process.

The drone patent comes at a time when Twitter shares have recorded a sharp decline amid concerns on user growth and monetisation.

Some of the other big companies who have looked into using drones for their businesses include Google and e-commerce giants like Amazon and Snapdeal, but the idea is still an ambitious concept, cosidering the technical and safety issues.
