Library

The Library is Media Studio’s home page, where you can scroll through your media library, search your content, filter (by file type), upload new media, edit metadata, review analytics, and much more.

Here you will be able to see all your videos, GIFs, and image assets that you’ve shared from your Twitter account. This includes media assets that are Tweeted directly from your account and/or that are uploaded via Media Studio.
