A Twitter video player has been in the works for some time now and more details have finally been released about this highly anticipated feature. More similar to YouTube than Vine, it will allow users to upload ten minutes of footage in the MP4 or MOV format. What makes the Twitter video player stand out all the more is the fact that there is no cap to the size of the footage. The company released a statement saying they are "encouraging partners to use the highest resolution source video."

Although it looks like the Twitter video player is being aimed at businesses and brands over the everyday user, it does signal a specific future for the social networking platform, one that excludes YouTube.
