Twitter allows verified users to upload 2-hour long videos on platform

Elon Musk announced Thursday that verified members of the microblogging site will now be able to upload two-hour videos.

Taking to Twitter, Musk wrote, “Twitter Blue Verified subscribers can now upload two-hour (8GB) videos!”


According to TechCrunch, a US-based tech portal, Twitter has made changes to its paid plan and expanded the previous 60-minute limit to two hours.

The company also tweaked its Twitter Blue page and said that the video file size limit for paid users has now increased from 2GB to 8GB. While earlier longer video uploading was only possible from the web, now it is also possible through the iOS app. Despite these changes, the maximum upload quality is still 1080p, reports TechCrunch.

Soon after Musk announced the news, many social media users flooded the comments section and shared their reactions.

One user wrote, “Twitter is the new Netflix.”

Another user commented, “So cool! Thanks for making this possible!”

“Welcome to Tweetube,” one user wrote.

Recently, Musk appointed Linda Iaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter who will focus primarily on business operations.

Musk, who bought Twitter for $44 billion last year, will continue to maintain a firm grip on the company and focus on designing new products and technology.

It recently announced that another update has been added to Twitter allowing its authorized users early access to the encrypted messaging service.

The update is currently only available to verified users.
