Twitter rolls out 6-sec video ad bidding feature

The shorter, the better is Twitter’s main theme based on this new update.

The microblogging platform is introducing a new 6-second video ad bid unit, which will allow advertisers to run short video ads and only be charged if it is viewed for at least six seconds.

The move is inspired by a study by EyeSee which revealed that shorter videos capture better results than long videos as highlighted below:

“A recent Twitter-sponsored study by EyeSee determined short-form (under six seconds), sound-off videos with clear branding drive significantly better ad recall and message association on mobile than linear TVC style videos. Optimal video creative and viewing experiences drive brand lift and sales.”

The option is now available to all advertisers worldwide.
