How to Send Videos to Twitter

By Graham Brown

Around the world, more than 50 million tweets are sent out through Twitter every day (that's 600 Tweets a second). If 140 characters aren't enough to get your point across, sending videos to Twitter will help you make much more of a statement. While it may be a little tricky to figure out how to post videos directly to Twitter, a number of third-party websites make the process much easier.

Step 1

Visit a Twitter video hosting site such as Twiddeo, TwitLens or TwitVid. These sites both host video files and post them directly to your Twitter account.

Step 2

Log in to the site using the username and password you use to log in to Twitter. You may need to respond to a dialogue box to allow the site access to your Twitter account.

Step 3

Click "Choose File" or "Browse" to locate your saved video file. At this point, you can also add a text message to accompany the video.

Step 4

Click "Upload" to upload your video and post it to your Twitter account. You can now log in to Twitter to make sure the post was completed.
