Twitter Now Supports GIFs in iOS App

Written by Nuel

If you ever wanted to make a GIF from your iOS camera while using the Twitter app, today’s your lucky day. Twitter announced that now, we can do just that.

When you compose a new tweet on iOS, click the camera button. Then, you have the option to choose between a photo, a video, and an animated GIF. Your GIF recording can’t be very long — only a few seconds — but hey, it’ll probably come in handy once or twice?


After you record your short GIF, you have the choice to either play it front to back on the circle, or you can make it play like an Instagram boomerang, playing forward, then, at that point, switch on the circle. Anything is possible for you, except to make a GIF that endures longer than like two seconds.

When you make the GIF, it saves consequently to your camera roll as a GIF in your pictures envelope – it’s anything but a video. Since it’s a GIF.


Twitter releases so many new features these days that it’s hard to keep track. Some recent updates you may have missed include posting clips from Spaces, a potential upcoming spin on Instagram’s “close friends” list, and some timeline algorithm snafus. Twitter hasn’t indicated when this GIF feature might roll out for Android, but Twitter usually adds in new updates to Android users eventually. Soon, hopefully, you too can post a GIF of your snake plant.
