Twitter Tweet - Video
Dimensioned layout drawings of the Twitter Video Tweet labeled with height and width

Twitter Video Tweets have a height between 600-1200 px and width of 1200 px for a recommended maximum aspect ratio of 1:1. Other video ratios are supported but they will be cropped to 1:1. Tweeted Videos supports MP4 and MOV formats with a maximum file size of 1 GB. Videos durations are recommended to be 15 seconds, though videos can be up to 2 minutes and 20 seconds long. Tweets have a limit of 280 characters, or 257 characters if a link is included.
