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

After rolling out Twitter Blue earlier this month, the microblogging platform has added a few features to improve the experience of users. There is one standout feature, which lets Twitter Blue subscribers upload longer videos on the site.
“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),” reads the Twitter Blue official page.
According to a report by TechCrunch, prior to the update, subscribers could only upload videos up to 512MB in size and 10 minutes in length at 1080 pixels resolution.

However, the limit is still accessible if users log in to Twitter via iOS or Android devices.
Here’s how Twitter Blue subscribers can upload longer video on the platform:

  1. Log in to and click on the compose box, or click the Tweet button.
  2. Click the gallery button.
  3. Choose a video file stored on your device and click Open. Users will be prompted if the video isn’t in a supported format. Do note that the videos must be shorter than 60 minutes with up to 2GB file size.
  4. Complete your message and click Tweet to share your Tweet and video.

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

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

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