Twitter has launched a new tool as part of its Media Studio that is designed to make it easier to create video clips from live streams on the social media site.
LiveCut is a cloud-based web application that enables editing and distribution of video highlights of a livestream from a Twitter account.
This new service will serve as a replacement for SnappyTV, which has been Twitter’s real-time video-clipping service for the last five years. LiveCut integrates SnappyTV’s core functionality while utilising its own features to provide fast and free video-clipping services to social media producers. In addition, publishers can now launch private broadcasts, share broadcasts across teams and create and monetise video clips.
“We’re confident that we’ve created a product that seamlessly serves video producers’ live-clipping needs on Twitter and, looking forward, will continue investing in it to develop new features that expand its functionality,” said Twitter.
