Twitter's Latest Feature Allows Users Combine Video, Pictures, and GIFs

For the past few weeks, Twitter has tested some experimental features such as co-authored tweets and an AIM or MySpace style status label for users.

Twitter is experimenting with a new feature that allows users to include numerous images, videos, and GIFs in a single message.

A new feature allowing consumers to blend up to four media elements into a single tweet, regardless of format, is being tested with select accounts for a short period.”

For the first time, we’re witnessing a rise in the use of images, GIFs, and videos in Twitter chats, “Twitter announced in a statement to TechCrunch.

“People will be able to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters by combining these multiple media forms.”

Alessandro Paluzzi, an app researcher, previously released screenshots of what the tweet composer looks like when incorporating many media types into a single tweet.

There is an ability to add, remove, and change the order of numerous images and videos attached to a tweet, similar to the current technique of attaching multiple photos.

People’s data plans could be in jeopardy as a result of tweeting multiple movies or GIFs at the same time.
