Twitter Blue Subscribers Can Now Post 2-Hour Long Videos
Twitter now enables its premium account holders to upload longer videos. The Twitter Blue button have been upgraded so that paid members can now submit videos up to two hours long and 8GB in size.
These new limits are much higher than before and aim to attract podcast creators, independent filmmakers, and other content creators. However, it may also allow people to share pirated content (unauthorized duplicate).
The previous maximum limit for video length was one hour, so this update doubles that limit, and the standard file size limit has also quadrupled from 2GB to 8 GB. The video resolution is still capped at 1080 pixels across the board.
In December, Twitter introduced the one-hour perk for Blue subscribers, and they have recently improved their media player by adding playback-speed controls.
Additionally, iOS users now have the option to post larger films directly from the mobile app, something that was previously only allowed via the web. Longer videos will still require Android users to utilize a web browser.
However, it’s important to note that a Twitter Blue subscription is not required to watch these longer videos; anyone can do so.
Last week, Elon Musk announced that Linda Yaccarino, a former NBCUniversal ad sales executive, will become the new CEO of Twitter, replacing Musk in the upcoming weeks.
Musk said that although he will concentrate on product designs and new technology, Yaccarino will mostly be responsible for business operations.
