Twitter has introduced a new way of sharing different types of visual content — videos, images, and GIFs — together in a single Tweet. Adding “mixed” media to a Tweet is now straightforward.
This Is How To Do It:
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). That’s it!
You 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.
Twitter is helping creators express themselves better by always looking for new and exciting ways to help them share more and be seen.
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 story.
This new tool has opened up a whole new world of opportunity for users to share their work beautifully behind the scenes. Now creatives can capitalize on this feature and share more of their process moving forward.
Everyone including professional photographers, can use this feature to add some more interactive depth to the behind-the-scenes moments on Twitter.
This feature also 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.
