DUBAI: Nintendo’s most recent successful launch, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, was uploaded to Twitter in its entirety on April 28, before it was removed a couple of days later.
The movie received millions of views on Twitter, and was tweeted out in parts by different users, thanks to the social platform no longer having a trust and safety compliance team.
Twitter Blue subscribers are now given the option to upload longer videos onto the platform, which is why some verified accounts were able to illegally stream the entire movie in a tweet.
Two accounts responsible for doing that have reportedly been suspended for violating Twitter rules. However, other users are still able to post the film.
Avatar: The Way of Water has also been fully uploaded to Twitter, according to several media sources.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie was released in theatres on April 5, and in Japan on April 28. Since its release the movie has raked up over 1 billion USD or about 136 billion Japanese yen, making it one of the top-grossing movies ever.
