🔸 Larger video files share on LinkedIn but the video converts to a clickable image that redirects to the video post's Public Post Page.

Twitter specifications

Twitter's API does not allow videos to be published to the platform from a third-party vendor.

When sharing videos to Twitter from EveryoneSocial, the video will convert to an image with a link to a Public Post Page to watch the video.
