- Twitter, under the control of Elon Musk, announced new features for Twitter Blue subscribers, including the ability to upload videos up to two hours long and 8 GB in size.
- This update is intended to appeal to content creators and podcasters, but raises concerns about the increase in pirated content on the platform.
- In addition, it is highlighted that the reduction of Twitter’s moderation and security team poses challenges in terms of content control.
Twitter added new benefits to subscribers to the social media platform, according to an announcement it made on its Twitter account. account Elon Musk himself.
New features for those who pay for Twitter Blue include the ability to upload videos up to two hours long, twice the current length.
Thus, from now on, Twitter Blue allows you to publish videos of up to 120 minutes and up to 8 Gigabytes, which opens the door to most films, since the blue bird’s social network does not condition the videos according to whether or not they have rights.
The resolution, according to Twitter, is a maximum of 1080 px, both in the long videos on Twitter Blue and in the regular and free version.
Twitter Blue Verified subscribers can now upload 2 hour videos (8GB)!

The extension to two hours and the number of Gigabytes double the previous limits, which were one hour and up to 2 Gigabytes in size.
Twitter and the 2 hour videos
With this decision, the company that is part of the conglomerate of companies controlled by Elon Musk, is seeking to make the platform more attractive to those who create content, not only in relation to audiovisual materials, but also to podcasters.
Suffice it to say that, following this line of work, Last month, Twitter updated its media player, adding modern standards.. One of the new tools, for example, is speed control.
The problem is that the changes to Twitter Blue, especially the one to allow two-hour videos, will surely encourage pirated movie content.
Just remember that at the beginning of May The Super Mario Bros Movie was published in its entirety on Twitter and was played by more than 9 million people before being deleted.
The Twitter Blue user who uploaded the Mario Bros. film used two tweets at that time, because the maximum length was one hour.
The Super Mario Bros was not the only pirated film to hit Twitter, they also posted full and pirated versions of “Avatar 2” and “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Challenge”.
The new limits of up to two hours is a real problem because you have to take into account that Musk laid off more than half of the workers on the network, and many of them were part of the moderation and security teams.
