Twitter users may soon have the opportunity to stream full-length movies on the platform, as the company plans to allow the sharing of videos longer than three hours. Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, revealed this plan in response to a well-known podcaster. In a tweet to Theo Von, Musk stated, “Comedy is legal on this platform!”
Long videos on Twitter?
Lex Fridman, the renowned host of the Lex Fridman Podcast, who recently shared a video of himself training jiu-jitsu with Musk, commented, expressing his approval, “Nice. It would be great to be able to upload three-hour-plus podcast videos, with timestamps/chapters. PS: Theo is awesome.”
Musk responded, confirming the development, with a simple “Coming.”
Von also chimed in, thanking Elon and offering his assistance, saying, “Thanks Elon! Let me know when you’re ready to bring podcasts to Twitter. Happy to help.”
It’s worth noting that in May, Elon Musk enabled Twitter Blue subscribers to upload two-hour videos (8GB) to the platform. Twitter had also updated its Twitter Blue page and announced that the video file size limit for paid users had been increased from 2GB to 8GB. However, despite these changes, the maximum upload quality remains 1080p.
