The “Millennial pauses” and How to Eliminate Them from your videos

If you're a video creator on TikTok, then you know how important it is to capture your audience's attention from the get-go. That's why Daniel Mac's recent "interview" with the CEO of TikTok, Shou Zi Chew, caught my attention. 

In the video, Chew shared some valuable advice for video creators, urging them to cut out any "Millennial pauses" in their videos. What's a "Millennial pause," you ask? It's that moment of hesitation that we all tend to have when we're speaking or performing on camera.

Chew's advice is simple – cut out those pauses and keep your content flowing smoothly. This will not only make for a more engaging video, but it'll also help keep your viewers hooked until the very end. So if you're looking to improve your video content on TikTok, keep Chew's advice in mind and give those "Millennial pauses" the cut.

These pauses, known as millennial pauses, are actually natural breaks in speech when taking a breath. However, in the world of fast-paced communication, these pauses can sometimes be seen as a hindrance to getting the message across quickly. That's where editing apps such as CapCut come in handy. With the ability to eliminate these pauses seamlessly, the message can be delivered without any interruptions in flow. 

And while some may argue that it takes away from the natural sound of conversation, it's important to remember that technology is constantly evolving and adapting to our changing communication needs.
