JAKARTADAILY.ID – Twitter, the popular social media platform, has made a significant update to its video upload limits, allowing paying users to upload videos of up to two hours in length and 8GB in size.

This increase in limit now enables users to upload full-length movies, providing them with more flexibility and creative freedom.

Twitter CEO, Elon Musk, took to the platform to announce this development, stating, "Blue Verified Twitter subscribers can now upload 2 hours (8GB) videos!" as quoted by Geo News.

Under Musk's leadership, Twitter has been actively working towards enhancing the video experience for its users. The platform introduced the long-form video upload feature in December of last year, and more recently, it added new playback speed controls on the web, allowing users to customize their video-watching experience.

Musk has expressed his aspirations to transform Twitter into a multi-purpose platform that can compete with other popular video-sharing platforms like YouTube.

His vision includes building apps and features that enable users to not only share short snippets but also upload and consume longer videos seamlessly.

In pursuit of this goal, Twitter has rolled out various features catering to its paid users, such as increasing the character limit to 10,000 and revamping the Super Follows feature into Subscriptions.

These initiatives aim to provide more value to paying users and attract a broader range of content creators to the platform.

Since Musk took over as CEO in late October, Twitter has been subject to controversy and significant changes. Musk has made bold decisions, including staff layoffs, reinstating previously blocked accounts, suspending journalists, and introducing fees for services that were once free.

These moves have sparked concern among advertisers, leading some to withdraw from the platform, fearing their brands might be associated with objectionable content.

As Twitter continues to evolve under Musk's leadership, it remains to be seen how the platform will strike a balance between innovation, user satisfaction, and advertiser trust, ensuring a positive and engaging experience for its vast user base.
