Is more than 12 hours okay?

I was wondering, why is it necessary to change it every 12 hours?  If you're on your fourth day or something and know that you won't overflow, why not leave it in for 24 hours?  I know that since tampons work through absorbency that's why they need to be changed, but if you're just putting the same exact menstrual cup back inside, why does it need to be emptied?
