Twitter uploading step-by-step instructions:

  1. Click the Tweet button
  2. Click Add media, choose a video file, and click Open (Note: Maximum file size is 512MB)
  3. In the Edit window, you can trim the length of your selected video (Note: Maximum video length is 2 minutes and 20 seconds)
  4. Click Done when you’re finished with your edits
  5. Click Tweet to share your video

how to use video online

Paste links directly from YouTube into your Twitter account to ensure that video thumbnails are included in each Tweet. Do not use a social media scheduling service (Hubspot, Buffer, MeetEdgar, HootSuite, etc.) or the thumbnails may not display correctly. Also, make sure to use industry-related hashtags!
