From the devices we use to consume content, the type of content we consume, and indeed our viewing habits, almost every aspect of media and more importantly, our relationship with media, has undergone a significant change in the last 10 to 15 years. As an example, in the UK adults aged 16 and over watched, on average, 34 minutes less television in 2017 than in 2010 (according to Statista). While the rise of streaming services and on-demand content is undoubtedly a contributing factor, a bigger influence is almost certainly the rise in social media consumption.In fact, in 2015, more than 370 years of video - just shy of 200 million minutes - were watched on Twitter worldwide on a daily basis. As is the case with any industry, such rapid change brings with it new challenges, and the need for evolution and adaptation, and captioning is no exception.
