Twitter Rolling Out Support for Picture-in-Picture on iOS

Twitter appears to be adopting support for picture-in-picture mode on the iPhone and iPad, with some Twitter users reporting access to a feature that allows them to watch Twitter videos while doing other tasks on the ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌.

Twitter Feature
Starting a video in Twitter and then swiping out of the app leaves the video player open, so Twitter users can use other apps while continuing to watch video content from the social network.

Twitter has had an in-app picture-in-picture option previously, but the new feature allows Twitter video to be watched while using other apps, similar to how YouTube and other video content apps work on iPhones and iPads.


Not all Twitter users have access to the picture-in-picture feature as of yet, which suggests that Twitter is still in the process of rolling out support. Accessing the feature requires the latest version of the Twitter app on ‌iPhone‌ or ‌iPad‌.

Can confirm you can no longer access Twitter without logging into a Twitter Account. Elon Musk really wants you to create an account now. No other way around it!
*stops using Twitter completely

^ I found a way around it!

2023 is becoming the death-year of the last few socials I was using…

Time to dust-off the IRL hobbies I’ve been neglecting ?

Or you could just delete Twitter and move on from a toxic sludge factory.

I just discovered this.

So now Twitter loses out on any advertising revenue from non-subscribed visitors... smart!

I was told Twitter would be shutdown by now and that Elon doesn't know what he's doing.

Can't wait for those who said "Elon was supposed to step down as CEO because he promised he would" to also say "Yeah, Elon had to step down as CEO because he needed someone who knows what they're doing".
