# What does “in ten-second chunks” mean in this sentence?

I came across this sentenece and I am not sure what the exact meaning of it, especially the expression "in ten-second chunks".

This snapchat story depicts the life of a modern-day Lydia Bennet in ten-second chunks.

Would anybody like to interpret for me?

• @Andrew No, I am not. Snapchat is banned in my country. Would you please give me an explanation? – dennylv Sep 12 '17 at 1:05
• And what does the word "chunk" mean here? A piece? A period of time? – dennylv Sep 12 '17 at 1:13
• Chunk = piece. Piece of what? Time. Piece of time = interval of time. Ten-second chunk = ten second interval of time. ...presto! – user30379 Sep 12 '17 at 1:32

The adjective (one-foot, one-inch, two-chapter, ten-second) tells us what kind of chunk (piece) it is (physical object, time, book, etc) – Tᴚoɯɐuo Sep 12 '17 at 11:20
