    “Twitter Is The New Netflix”: Netizens React To Elon Musk Adding Long-Form Content Feature For Twitter Blue Users

    With Linda Yaccarino’s appointment as the Twitter CEO, Elon Musk is finally making changes on the tech side of things. The billionaire owner announced a new feature for Twitter Blue subscribers. Now for their monthly fee of $8, Twitter Blue faithful can upload videos for as long as two hours on their accounts.

    When the tweet announcing this feature came out, the internet reacted lukewarmly. While some are praising this addition, others fear that this move leaves the user base open to potentially conservative content. There are also jokes about how Twitter is heading to become a streaming service with people wanting to upload movies.

    @BallinKy was much critical, calling Twitter a breeding ground of hate. He won’t be coming back to Twitter.
