Luckily, Twitter Is Making Their Live Video Quality Better. According to the verge, Twitter announced Tuesday that it’s dropping a feature from its live broadcasts tool, but the company is removing it in service of making your video broadcast quality better.
What’s gone? Now, you aren’t able to invite guests to join you in a broadcast via audio ahead of going live. That feature was added in March 2020.
Now, when you go live, your broadcast will just feature you and whoever else happens to be in the frame, though people can still post in the chat or tap to add a heart to interact with you while you’re broadcasting.
“Some good news: we’ve made updates to improve video quality. Starting today, videos you upload to Twitter will appear less pixelated for a better watching experience,” Twitter said.

Although Twitter says the change is intended to improve video quality, it’s also worth noting that Twitter has another feature for shared live audio: its Clubhouse-like Spaces offering.
Spaces seem to have caught on more than what Twitter live video used to let you do, so perhaps the company thought it would be redundant to offer both and is focusing on the feature that seems to have more traction.
The change also follows another to improve video quality on the platform: in September, it announced that new videos posted to the platform would be less pixelated. I haven’t noticed a drastic difference yet, but I’ll take any improvement Twitter can make.
Twitter is an online news and social networking site where people communicate in short messages called tweets.
Tweeting is posting short messages for anyone who follows you on Twitter, with the hope that your words are useful and interesting to someone in your audience. Another description of Twitter and tweeting might be micro-blogging.
Why Twitter Is So Popular
Twitter’s big appeal is how scan-friendly it is. You can track hundreds of engaging Twitter users and read their content with a glance, which is ideal for our modern attention-deficit world.
Twitter employs a purposeful message size restriction to keep things scan-friendly: every microblog tweet entry is limited to 280 characters or less.
This size cap promotes the focused and clever use of language, which makes tweets easy to scan, and challenging to write. This size restriction made twitter a popular social tool.
