Twitter may soon enable adding photos, videos and GIFs in single tweet

Twitter confirms that it is testing a new feature. This will allow users to post images, videos, and GIFs in one multimedia tweet. Twitter lets you do more than type 280 characters. Users can also attach GIFs and photos to their tweets. However, the micro-blogging platform would limit users to stick to one type of media in tweets. So if you attached a photo, you could add more photos, but not another form of media. Now, Twitter is working on changing this.

A new leak by Twitter tipster Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) suggests that the platform is working on the ability to attach photos, videos, and GIFs in the same tweet.

The company confirmed the test and said it is available to some users for a limited time. It is adding that accounts can add tags to both photos and videos in the tweet, according to the reports.

Twitter may soon allow posting images and videos in one tweet

However, note that the new ability still sticks to the limit of four elements. So while you can now attach multiple media together. There is still a limit of four pictures/videos/GIFs.

“We’re seeing people have more visual conversations on Twitter and are using images, GIFS and videos to make these conversations more exciting. With this test we’re hoping to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters,” Twitter said in a statement

Recently, Twitter confirmed that it is testing a new status feature. This will let users tag posts with pre-defined labels, much like the statuses that the previous LiveJournal and MySpace systems permitted.

Currently the feature is under testing

Some of these statuses include “Spoiler alert”, “Shower thoughts”, “Picture of the day” and for some reason, the very redundant “Current status”.

The addition will be a welcome change for users who want to post multiple media, especially photos and videos together. The only workaround right now for users who wanted to share both together was to turn a single tweet into a thread and attach photos in one tweet and videos in another.
