Twitter has recently announced that it is going to allow 140-second videos, giving it the same amount of power to videos as that of a tweet on the platform.

This move will allow people to post videos over 2-minutes compared to the previous 30-second video limit. With this new option, it will allow people to put out more meaningful video content as part of their video tweets, according to the official twitter blog.

This will be a good news for Vine makers as the 6-10 second video snippet that ranges from being funny and surprising can grow longer.

With video tweets forming over 50% of the content being generated on the twitter platform, it is a logical move considering that Facebook, Instagram and all other platforms have increased the amount of video content that can be hosted on their platforms recently.
