Videos on your Twitter feed should now look a lot less crunchy, according to a recent cheep from the support account of the microblogging platform.
The tweet claims that videos uploaded to Twitter “will appear less pixelated,” thanks to a new update aimed at improving video quality.
Good news: we have made updates to improve the quality of the video.
Starting today, videos you upload to Twitter will appear less pixelated for a better viewing experience. pic.twitter.com/lJPI14PVRV

According to reports from The edge, the improvement in question involved removing a “pre-processing step” that “breaks videos into smaller chunks” in the upload process.
Apparently this step sometimes lowered the quality of the final posted video.
