Elon Musk wants to make Twitter better for creators. He has been vocal about his plans to make Twitter a better place for creators. In recent months, the company has introduced creator-centric tools, like increasing the character limit to 10,000 for paid users.
Now adding to it, Twitter lets Twitter Blue subscribers upload videos that are two hours long. As per Twitter, the video file size limit has also been increased from 2GB to 8GB. So far, Twitter allowed long video uploads only from the web but now, it is possible to upload from the iOS app as well. While Twitter has increased the duration of video uploads for its paid users from 60 minutes to 2 hours, the maximum upload quality remains capped at 1080p.
Twitter Blue Verified subscribers can now upload 2 hour videos (8GB)!

Twitter Blue provides a number of benefits, along with the blue checkmark, which include, paid users will be able to edit published tweets within 30 minutes. They will also be able to “undo” tweets, which means they are allowed to preview and revise the tweet before it is posted on the platform.
Non-Blue subscribers will still only be able to post videos that top out at 140 seconds. On Android, Twitter Blue users can upload 10-minute-long videos only but that may change soon.
Those who do not have a Twitter Blue subscription can upload videos of up to 140 seconds.
