VideoTweet is a new utility from the folks over at Arctic Whiteness that brings Twitter sharing to Final Cut Pro X. Appearing as a destination within Final Cut Pro X’s export options, it’s a quick way to get video from a project to your Twitter followers.
Final Cut Pro X integration is just one part of what VideoTweet brings to the table. The app is also a standalone tool that makes it possible to select a specific portion of a video, enable or disable its audio, and embed the video inside a tweet.
VideoTweet supports all QuickTime compatible formats, including: .mov .mp4 and .m4v. It also features an extension that allows you to share videos from the desktop, in the Photos app and elsewhere.
VideoTweet includes an OS X Share Extension
As someone who edits video on a regular basis, I value its ability to share from Final Cut Pro X. Just select VideoTweet as a destination, and the project will export to VideoTweet ready to share. You can configure multiple Twitter accounts inside the app, and add a snippet of text to lend context to the videos that you share.
Previously, my workflow was fairly convoluted, but VideoTweet has helped to streamline my efforts. Even if you aren’t a Final Cut Pro X user, you may still find it to be a handy tool for quickly uploading video clips to Twitter.
VideoTweet is available for free via the developer’s website. The free version includes a hashtag and backlink in tweets in order to help Arctic Whiteness spread the word. Users can opt for a paid, white label version as well. The paid version is only $3.41 and removes the hashtag and link from your tweets.
If you’re looking for a way to quickly upload videos to Twitter, then VideoTweet is worth considering. Check out the free version to see if you like it; you can always pay for the white label version at a later time.
