Twitter allows users to combine photos, videos and GIFs into one tweet


New Delhi: Twitter is introducing a new feature that allows users to combine gifs, photos, videos and memes into a single tweet on both Android and iOS devices. The company said it will give anyone the ability to share multiple types of media in a single tweet.

“This feature will roll out globally to iOS and Android, with a chance to see mixed media tweets on the web,” the company said in a blog post late Wednesday. The feature was first noticed by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi in April. (Also read: Incredible! Waterproof your smartphone by spending just Rs 50, here’s HOW)

Previously, anyone who wanted to share different media formats had to do it in different Tweets or threads. Now, when people open the Tweet composer, they can select and upload a combination of up to four types of media — photos, memes, GIFs, and videos — and publish them all together.

“They can also rearrange the layout of their media while composing the Tweet,” according to the microblogging platform. “Tap the photo icon in the Tweet composer to mix your media,” it added.

The video carousel in the Discover tab currently helps people find more videos they like, in addition to Tweets and Trends that may interest them. It is currently available to people in select countries who use Twitter in English on iOS and Android.

The company said the updated immersive media viewer extends videos to full screen with a single click, giving people easy access to the full immersive viewing experience. “To activate it, people who can access Twitter on iOS simply tap or click a video in the Twitter app,” it reads.
