YouTube Will Stop Tweets for New Videos

Original Article: https://9to5google.com/2019/01/10/youtube-twitter-sharing-tools/

 

Main Points:

"After January 31st, the ability to automatically post your YouTube Activity on Twitter and Google+ will no longer be available."

"Automatic sharing to Twitter and Google+ via uploads or Creator Studio"
"You’ll also no longer see the option to automatically share your video on Google+ and Twitter via the upload flow in Creator Studio. "

 

Notes from Article

  • "YouTube doesn’t provide any reason for why this functionality is going away, interestingly. Unlike other recent feature removals which were taken out due to minimal usage, this one seems odd considering a huge number of creators still take advantage of the functionality."

 

Quote

From @LinusTech

"Auto-generated tweets perform like hot garbage compared to manually posted ones. There's no reason for this on YT's side. This is a Twitter issue, but clearly they have no intention of fixing it, so YT might as well deprecate the feature."

 

My Takeaway: The LTT Twitter account will be seeing a lot less activity. ? 

All seriousness, with the helpful information provided by Linus, it seems logical for this feature to be retired.

nah, it wont. You can still send manual tweets on YT from the videos page. so instead of it being automated, it will be manually sent.

Yes, but it's a lot more inconvenient for creators. If you're video posts at midnight, would you be willing to send out the tweet notification?

well you have to manually set the video live anyways... so someone is physically going to be there doing it... im sure they will come up with some type of standardized tweet format for the videos too where they just have to copy/paste it.

Creators shouldn't be doing this anyway.

 

Auto-generated tweets perform like hot garbage compared to manually posted ones. There's no reason for this on YT's side. This is a Twitter issue, but clearly they have no intention of fixing it, so YT might as well deprecate the feature.

You can set a video to publish automatically at a certain time and date. I like the idea for the generalized format.

Huh. I suspect that it's actually a human thing where people don't like bot content as much (unless they're 5 *finger family song intensifies*) so they don't like/interact as much since it's essentially just a link

So Twitter's System buries them as something close to spam? YouTube might not like the lack of traffic the posts bring.

If you're posting a video at midnight, and it's that important to post it exactly at midnight, then yes, you would get up and post it at midnight

Next month's is the sound, and just in time for Easter bunnies we'll lose the video.

And by Christmas no more descriptions. Just titles and like button.

Linus is absolutely right, this is twitter's doing, not youtube's. Twitter has been cracking down a lot on automated tweets this past few months. Amazon and gleam both had auto-generated tweet features that were either removed or made much less automated.

Why are you making it post at midnight? Just post the video the same time you can tweet about it or wait and tweet the next morning. That scenario seems very niche.

Niche yes. I’m not defending the choice for posting at midnight, I just know creators do that.

YES! A few months ago I cleaned out my twitter from about ~250 tweets that Youtube had sent out every time I added to a playlist. It was terrible, and it was never clear to me when I agreed to have that happen. 

I am conducting some polls regarding your opinion of large technology companies. I would appreciate your response. 

Microsoft Apple Valve Google Facebook Oculus HTC AMD Intel Nvidia

I'm using this data to judge this site's biases so people can post in a more objective way.
