Review of Twitter’s video platform on Android

Screenshot_2015-02-08-18-24-53A very obvious invitation popped up in an update from twitter tonight in the Android app in my Moto X running Android 4.4.4 to try the new integrated twitter video publishing platform.

The made the walk though really simple and there are popups along the way for each function.

  • 20 seconds of video (record timer turns red when you have run out of time keeps recording)
  • you can record multiple clips
  • can delete a recorded clip
  • can move around the clip order
  • can use front facing camera
  • use your flash
  • record video with phone vertical (frame is almost square)
  • upload time for 20 seconds was 58 seconds on Verizon LTE
  • posting to Twitter was instant with video available instantly
  • embed options available on web interface for video embed only or twitter plus video embed
  • Not easy to embed in Facebook without embedding via page link first
  • Haven’t found a way to save videos created
