Twitter on Friday announced the long-awaited feature that its boss Elon Musk had promised to bring to the platform — that subscribers can now upload videos up to 60 minutes long from around the web at 1080p resolution and 2GB in file size.
Until recently, the maximum file size for videos on this platform was 512MB and they could only be 10 minutes long with 1080p resolution.
- Both iOS and Android users are still subject to the same limit when uploading videos.
- Supported file types include MP4s and MOvs.
- Max file size will be 2GB file size (1080p) for web only.
- You can upload unlimited videos.
Twitter recently updated its Blue Page to ensure that all videos adhere to the company’s regulations. By doing so, they are effectively safeguarding users and providing a more secure platform for them to engage with others in an enjoyable way.
Twitter has expressed its willingness to adjust the quality of video for distribution purposes.
Here’s what Twitter support page said:
“We are committed to providing the utmost quality for all uploaded videos on Twitter. Our commitment to excellence guarantees you a stunning visual experience with each viewing!. However, we reserve the right to modify your original video to optimize it for different media types. We may also modify certain elements like resolution and bitrate while streaming based on internet connection speed and reliability. This revised video version will be distributed, syndicated, published, or broadcast by us and our partners.”
By increasing the maximum length of videos allowed to be uploaded on Twitter, the website will have a greater responsibility to protect against copyright infringement and piracy. To ensure that posts do not stay up for too long, moderators and automated systems must remain vigilant about eliminating movies or entire TV show episodes.
Last month, when Twitter’s copyright protection was disabled for a short period of time, users seized the opportunity to upload full-length films in smaller chunks.The new 60-minute video limit makes it easier for perpetrators to distribute stolen content.
In addition, Twitter Blue subscribers may be granted special access to prioritize replies from other accounts. The company said that users will “see a slight preference for replies from Blue verified accounts over other replies.” This implies that paid accounts’ responses are given priority and will be seen before any other replies. In its announcement, Twitter left users wondering how it would address potential trolls and spammers who use their financial resources to manipulate conversations.
In addition to the Blue verification badge, paid users will have exclusive access to longer video uploads and priority replies as the first features.
This month, Elon Musk revamped Twitter Blue! The subscription for iOS users is priced at $11 a month to receive that much sought after blue tick, while all other can get it for just $8 per month. It’s an amazing deal – don’t miss out on this chance to revamp your presence and elevate your profile!
How to post longer videos of up to 60 minutes on Twitter?
Users can now post up to 60 minutes of video from supported websites such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Daily Motion. They can also upload videos directly from their phones. Longer videos must be in MP4 or MOV format with a maximum resolution of 1080p and a file size limit of 2GB per video.
For users who want to post longer videos on Twitter, it is important to make sure that the video adheres to all copyright laws and regulations before sharing it online. It is also recommended that users provide context or additional information about the content they are sharing in order to make sure viewers understand its relevance.
Furthermore, moderators should remain diligent in monitoring posts for any potential copyright infringement or piracy activities.
What is Twitter Blue badge subscription:
With the Twitter Blue subscription, you now have access to the coveted Twitter blue badge! Users can now acquire a blue tick on their profile after subscribing to the service for $8 per month via web and an additional $3 more per month if done through an iPhone. Although its App Store listing indicates a price of Rs 999 per month in Indian currency, it is still unclear if this product can be accessed in India.
When you receive a Blue badge, it serves as an affirmation that your profile is genuine and regularly active. Until recently, the blue badge of Twitter was only accessible to well-known and renowned figures who had submitted their details for authentication. To maintain their Blue badge status, existing verified profiles must now abide by a monthly subscription requirement moving forward.
