X (Twitter) will be launching a long-form video app for Fire TVs

X, formerly known as Twitter, is reportedly launching a YouTube-like video app for long-form videos. The app is said to be coming to Fire TV devices and Samsung smart TVs first. Elon Musk has somewhat confirmed the news by acknowledging that it is “coming soon.” Twitter launched a TV app way back in 2016 on Fire TV devices and other platforms. The app was pulled from most platforms two years later but was kept alive on Fire TVs. The Fire TV Twitter app is, technically, still available for Fire TV devices but I don’t think anyone at X/Twitter knows because the app can’t get past its initial loading screen and does not work. Musk recently said X would be a video-first platform, so this new app is likely part of that strategy.

    Waiting for the APK and hoping I can properly watch SpaceX launches again.

    Let’s hope.
