Twitter Blue users can now upload videos up to 2 GB in size, 60 minutes in length
Los Angeles (US), December 23: Twitter announced exciting news for the platform's many video creators.
With the release of 'Twitter Blue,' the microblogging site updated a number of features to 'improve the experience' for users, including one that allows 'longer video upload'.
"Share more content with your followers. Twitter Blue subscribers can upload videos up to ~60 minutes long up to 2GB file size (1080p) (web only)," a message on Twitter Blue's official page stated.
According to a report by the US-based Tech portal, TechCrunch, prior to the update, subscribers of the service could only upload videos up to 512 MB in size and 10 minutes in length at 1080p resolution on the microblogging platform.
If users access Twitter via iOS or Android, the limit remains in effect.
Twitter previously began rolling out view count for tweets, a feature that shows how many people have viewed a specific tweet. Announcing this new feature in a tweet, Elon Musk wrote: "Twitter is rolling out View Count, so you can see how many times a tweet has been seen! This is normal for video."
According to a Twitter FAQ, not every tweet will have a visible view count. Community tweets, Twitter Circle tweets, and "older" tweets are exempt because the data for them isn't available.
"Anyone who views your Tweet counts as a view, regardless of where they see your Tweet (e.g. Home, Search, Profiles, Tweets embedded in articles, etc.) or whether or not they follow you. Even an author looking at their own Tweet counts as a view," Twitter clarified.
