Twitter has traditionally only let users upload 30-second videos from the mobile app. Users who wanted to upload longer videos had to use YouTune or Vimeo to host the video and then tweet the link.

But I just discovered a work-around for those of us who want to test longer native videos on Twitter.

Here’s how:

Go to ads.twitter.com

Click on “Creatives” and then “Videos.”

Upload your video.

Add a simple call-to-action.

No ad spend required to use this tool…ITS FREE.

Not everyone has this capability. And I have only gotten it to work on my desktop, not through mobile. But if you are able to access this capability, check it out!
