Twitter, renowned for its limited space for posts and short videos, has recently undergone significant changes, both in terms of its features and management.

Previously, the platform allowed a maximum video duration of 10 minutes, which was later extended to 60 minutes. However, it has now expanded the limit to two hours and 8GB for its paid users, a capacity large enough to upload a full-length movie.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, announced in a tweet, “Twitter Blue Verified subscribers can now upload 2-hour videos (8GB)!”

Under Musk’s leadership, the platform has taken steps to accommodate longer video uploads and viewing experiences. The company introduced the long video upload feature in December of last year and recently added new playback speed controls for web users.

Musk has expressed his ambition to transform Twitter into an “everything app” and compete with platforms like YouTube.

In pursuit of that goal, Twitter has introduced various features, including increasing the character limit to 10,000 for paid users and revamping Super Follows as Subscriptions.

Since Musk assumed control of Twitter in late October, the platform has been involved in numerous controversies. He has made bold decisions such as dismissing a significant portion of the staff, reinstating banned accounts, suspending journalists, and implementing charges for previously free services.

These actions have unsettled advertisers, leading many to withdraw from the platform due to concerns over their products being associated with problematic content.
