Some people are not a big fan of the auto play in videos in the new update on twitter. Its like when you come across a tweet with an embedded Vine, animated GIF or a clip in twitters native format, it begins to play on its own. It’s all part of the grand plan to shove advertising down our throat though Twitter would have us believe it’s trying to make our lives easier so we could “keep up with the action without missing a tweet and get a better sense of what’s been shared instantly.” Auto playing videos on twitter  drain your battery by the seconds more over they use most of your MB from your data plan.

How to Turn off Auto Playing of Videos on Twitter:

if you wish to mute the video single tap the video in the expanded view to mute the sound. in some devices if you turn your device upside down, the sound will automatically turn on and the video will expand to fill the screen.
