Good news for Tik Tok users

The social network TikTok will allow its users to post videos of up to ten minutes instead of the current maximum of three minutes

The social network TikTok will allow its users to post videos of up to ten minutes instead of the current maximum of three minutes, and the initiative aims to score a new point over its main competitor, YouTube.

This decision, which was reported by a number of American media outlets, and confirmed to AFP by the Tik Tok spokesman, comes less than eight months after the maximum period was increased from one minute to three.

A spokesman for the company, which is affiliated with the Chinese "ByteDance" group, hoped that "this step will provide more opportunities" for content producers on the network all over the world.
