- Twitter users are already misusing the platform’s ability to upload two-hour long videos.
- One user posted the entire John Wick: Chapter 4 movie on Twitter in two parts.
- This happened just a week after Musk announced Twitter Blue subscribers could post two-hour long videos.
Just a week back Elon Musk announced Twitter users could post longer videos up to two hours. This feature is exclusive to Twitter Blue subscribers that starts at Rs 650 per month in India. It looks like people are already misusing the feature as one user posted the entire John Wick 4 movie on Twitter and it stayed for quite some time.
A Twitter page going by the username @WORLDONLEAN leaked John Wick: Chapter 4 movie in two parts. The first part of the movie ran for one hour and 59 minutes. The remaining part span for 38 minutes and 45 seconds, and this was shared in another tweet. The videos have now been taken down due to copyright issues. This was expected by the Twitter user as well who tweeted saying, “Lets see how long this lasts”.
It looks like the movie did stay on Twitter for sometime and it had around 130k impressions, over 1,000 likes, 202 quotes, and 931 bookmarks, according to a report by MSP who also managed to grab some screenshots of the leaked movie.
It isn’t surprising that the movie was eventually taken down due to obvious reasons but it does show that Twitter’s feature does have some loopholes. Twitter Blue subscribers can upload videos up to two hours long in FHD (1080p) format on the web and the iOS app. But Android users can only upload videos up to 10 minutes long.

As for John Wick: Chapter 4, the movie released in theatres on March 24th and it has so far grossed $402 million globally. The Keanu Reeves-starrer action movie is also slated for an OTT release as it’s scheduled to release exclusively on Lionsgate Play on June 23rd.
