Now you can upload a 140sec video to Twitter






Not long ago Facebook launched its video comments, it seems other companies are now following that trend. 
Twitter , known for its 140-character limit on tweets, is now allowing users to post longer videos - of up to 140 seconds. The microblogging site also said that some publishers would also be able to create videos that were as long as 10 minutes.


Twitter also launched 'Twitter Engage', a new mobile app that allows publishers to analyze interactions with followers.

Twitter previously restricted videos to 30 seconds. The new 140-second limit also applies to Vine, Twitter's video streaming service, which previously had a six-second limit.

"Video is becoming increasingly central to the real-time conversations happening on Twitter ," Jeremy Rishel, Twitter Inc's vice president of engineering, wrote in a blog post.

The news comes a day after Twitter said it bought London-based Magic Pony Technology, a machine-learning startup that specializes in working with images, to deliver better video and picture content. Twitter's shares were marginally higher in early trading on Tuesday.
