The Ten Minute YouTube Attention Span

The Ten Minute YouTube Attention Span
Ever notice how the videos on YouTube.com seem to always be short and less than 10 minutes.

Why is this?

I am uploading a video about the cooking kit I use in hotel rooms. The video is about 11 minutes, I am worried that YouTube.com is going to moderate it and say,
“Video too long.”

I feel like I am being trained by YouTube.com to know the attention span of the average human.

Is the attention span of Humans incapable of lasting longer than 10 minutes?

There is something horribly wrong with this perspective of life.

Every you ever needed to say on any subject should never last more than 10 minutes, at least according to YouTube.com.
