Twitch reveals vertical video editor for stream clips

In a tweet, Twitch shared a video showing the new and improved clip editor available in the site’s creator dashboard.

They said: “It’s easier than ever to create social media videos of your best moments with the new Clip Editor!”

The new feature inside of Clip’s Manager will allow streamers to share directly to YouTube Shorts (provided you’ve connected your account) with ease.

To share on TikTok, Instagram Reels, and other social media platforms, however, you’ll have to download the clip and manually upload it on the other sites.
