Twitter is a rather common social media site that allows users to post up to 280 characters long status updates. Apart from this, users can post photos and videos as well.

Sometimes, however, you might get an error saying, “some of your media failed to upload.” In this article, we’re taking a look at a few solutions on how to fix this.

Try tweeting without media

If you’re using a relatively new account, it’s normal to run into issues like this. To get around the error, you’re going to have to trigger a verification captcha. To do so, try posting a tweet without any media, and Twitter should automatically show you the captcha when posting the tweet.

Once you’ve solved the captcha and verified yourself, you can now post tweets with photos or videos without a problem.

Disable VPN/Proxies

While VPNs are a great way of keeping yourself safe online, many sites use your geolocation data to show you local products and recommendations. So if Twitter detects a VPN or Proxy on your end, there’s a good chance that the site might malfunction. 

Clear your browser’s data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Chrome to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.
