When Twitter was unveiled 13 years ago, the developers restricted each user's tweet to 140 characters, with spaces added to the count.
2 years ago, Twitter increased the per-tweet character count to 280, but even these more lengthy posts can still cause brevity or a message broken up over the course of a number of different tweets.
Sharing a clip on Twitter lets you post much more content than you could in character-restricted posts. You can record yourself sharing a long message and tweet the clip along with the post, thereby boosting the amount of content you share.
It is also possible to upload that beautiful clip of your pet, baby e.t.c. Users can directly embed clips from platforms like YouTube into a tweet by just copying URLs, so sharing a clip via Twitter can be as simple as a copy and paste.
