Social media platform Twitter is expanding its features by allowing users to share different types of visual content — videos, images, and GIFs — together in a single Tweet.
Adding “mixed” media to a Tweet is simple and straightforward. When composing a Tweet, tap the “Media” or “GIF” icons and select the content you want to share (and don’t forget to add descriptive text to make your images more accessible).
Twitter users can add up to four videos, images, and/or GIFs per Tweet. The update is currently available on iOS and Android, however, Tweets with different content types can be consumed on all platforms.
“We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to help creators share more and be seen,” Twitter said.
Mixing different types of visual content together in a single Tweet allows creators to express themselves beyond 280 characters and gives them more ways to tell their stories.
“This update is the latest example of how we’re working to make Twitter the easiest and most convenient place to share images, videos, and other creative content,” Twitter said. “It complements the rollout of two new video products — full-screen videos and a new video carousel in the Explore tab — that help make it easier than ever for people to find and watch what’s happening on Twitter.”
