Billionaire Elon Musk has been actively making changes to the popular social media platform, Twitter, since taking over. One of his notable announcements last year was the introduction of “Twitter 2.0 The Everything App.” This upgraded version of the platform was set to include encrypted direct messages (DMs), long-form tweets, and payment options. Additionally, Musk introduced Twitter Blue, a paid verification service that allowed users to obtain a blue verified checkmark on their profiles by subscribing. Twitter Blue offered users access to new features and enhanced visibility on the microblogging platform.
Continuing his efforts to enhance the user experience, Musk recently unveiled a new feature targeted at individuals working with long-form video content.

Ah, Twitter, where brevity once reigned supreme and now it seems even our attention spans have stretched their limits! Two-hour videos? That’s quite the leap from 280 characters! I can already envision a world where we spend hours on end watching the mesmerizing art of avocado…
