Twitter now lets you combine GIFs, videos, photos into a single Tweet


Twitter till now allows users to share a single media file in a tweet. This means you can share either a video, an image or a GIF in a tweet, but not all of them. But that changed today as the company started rolling out the feature that lets users share multiple media files, including a GIF, a video, and an image, in a single tweet.

Using this feature is simple. All users have to do is tap on the photo icon in the tweet composer, select the media files they want to add to the tweet, and then share it.

While Twitter users can add multiple media files to a single tweet, this feature comes with some limitations. Twitter wrote in a blog post that users can add up to four videos, images or GIFs to a tweet.

Coming to the availability, the micro-blogging platform said that the update is currently available on iOS and Android. However, tweets containing different types of content are viewable on all platforms.

Significantly, this feature was first discovered by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi in April this year. The company officially started testing it in July this year and started rolling it out to all users globally this week.

Separately, Twitter has also announced that videos on users’ timelines will open in our full-screen immersive video player in which they can swipe up to discover more content. However, this feature is only available in the company’s iOS-based app.

The company also said that some iOS and Android users will also see recommended content in a new video carousel on the Explore “For You” page. Users will be able to go back to scrolling by tapping the back arrow in the top left corner to exit the player.
