Twitter is now allowing anyone to upload longer videos to their accounts. The new video length limit is 140 seconds, compared to the older limit of 30 seconds. Twitter's sister app Vine is beta testing a way to upload videos up to 140 seconds as well.
Now, everyone can post videos up to 140 seconds long! We can't wait to see the amazing videos you create and share.https://amp.twimg.com/v/497bd7a0-739f-4639-88ee-82bd1da026f1— Twitter Video (@video) June 21, 2016

You'll continue to see Vines, those short looping trailers we all know and love. It's just that now some Vines might have a longer video too. If you're not yet seeing the "Watch more" option, hang tight! (We're rolling the changes out to everyone as fast as we can, but computers like to be methodical. Those are the rules!)
