Twitter recently announced on the platform that they’re testing longer-form content with Twitter Blue subscribers.
As of March 4, subscribers can upload longer videos on iOS, android, mobile.twitter.com and desktop. The maximum length hasn’t yet been confirmed, but Twitter Blue tweeted that these videos are longer “as in 10 minutes long.” Subscribers will also have access to 1080p video uploads, but only on desktop.
These features are being tested through Twitter Blue Labs, where subscribers get the chance to try out platform updates before they’re available to all Twitter users or removed from the platform. In some cases, the new features remain available only to subscribers.
Earlier this week, TikTok announced they will also be expanding into longer-form content (up to 10 minutes) in a move to likely keep up with competitors YouTube and Instagram, and help users monetize their presence on the platform.
