Part 1. What Size should the Twitter Video Be?

When sharing videos on Twitter, it's essential to get the size right. The maximum length is 512 MB. And ensure your resolution falls between 32 x 32 pixels and a maximum of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

Twitter values brevity, so limit your video duration to 140 seconds. Keep it concise and engaging. Twitter supports only two video extensions: MP4 and MOV. Make sure your video is in one of these formats for seamless sharing.

Consider the video style; Twitter supports both Portrait and Landscape. The recommended aspect ratios range from 1:2.39 to 2.39:1. Experiment with these styles to find what suits your content best.
