Twitter has introduced a new perk for those users who are happy to pay the £8-a-month subscription fee: longer videos.

The company has updated its Twitter Blue Page to confirm paying customers can upload videos up to 60 minutes in length, 1080p resolution and up to 2GB in size.

That’s a big jump from the previous Twitter Blue limit of 10-minute videos, which had a size cap of 512MB.

If you’re just a plain old user, your limit is a paltry 4 minutes.

The unfortunate caveat with this longer video feature is that you have to upload it to Twitter on the web from a laptop or desktop. If you want to upload from Android or iOS, the original limit still applies.

Twitter also warns that it can change the quality of the video in order to distribute it.

“We strive to maintain the highest possible video quality for all videos uploaded to our platform. However, we may modify or adapt your original video for distribution, syndication, publication or broadcast by us and our partners and/or make modifications to accommodate different media, including changing the resolution and bitrate of the original video during streaming based on speed and stability of the viewer’s internet connection,” the company continued a support page.

By increasing the video limit available on the platform, Twitter may be hoping to attract more video creators to post there instead of TikTok or YouTube.

However, the decision obviously opens the door to all sorts of piracy-related issues. With a 60-minute limit, what’s stopping people from uploading entire TV episodes that then have to be removed by a moderation team?

Elon Musk launched the revamped Twitter Blue subscription tier earlier this month after a disastrous first attempt. The company charges users £8 a month (or £11 a month if you’re using an iPhone) for perks like undoing and editing tweets, prioritized ranking in conversations, and various themes and app icons.
