Twitter Blue subscribers get video features: How to use, other details

After rollout Twitter Blue earlier this month, the microblogging platform added some features to improve the experience of users. There is one outstanding feature that allows Twitter Blue subscribers to upload longer videos to the site.

According to a report by TechCrunch, before the update, subscribers could only upload videos up to 512MB in size and 10 minutes long at a resolution of 1080 pixels.

However, the limit is still accessible if users log into Twitter via iOS or Android devices.

  1. Log in to and click on the write box, or click on the Tweet button.
  2. Click the gallery button.
  3. Select a video file saved on your device and click Open. Users will be prompted if the video is not in a supported format. Note that the videos must be shorter than 60 minutes with a file size of up to 2 GB.
  4. Complete your message and click Tweet to share your Tweet and video.

Twitter View Count feature
Last week, Twitter also introduced the View Count feature. “Twitter is rolling out View Count so you can see how many times a tweet has been viewed! This is normal for video. Shows how much more alive Twitter is than it might seem, as more than 90% of Twitter users read, but don’t tweet, reply or like, because it’s public action,” said Elon Musk in a tweet.

According to Twitter’s FAQ page, not every tweet will show view count as there are certain exceptions which include – Community tweets, Twitter circle tweets and “older” tweets as data for these tweets is not available.
“Anyone who sees your Tweet counts as a view, regardless of where they see your Tweet (eg Home, Search, Profiles, embedded in articles, etc.) or whether they follow you or not. Even an author viewing their own Tweet counts as a view,” Twitter added.

Also, viewing a tweet from the web and then viewing it on the phone will count as two separate views. These views will also be visible to everyone, not just the owner of the account.
