Twitter is now rolling out an all-new feature that will let users combine text, photos, videos, and GIFs in a single tweet on both Android and iOS.
To use the feature now, all you need to do is tap the photo icon in the tweet composer and add the media of your choice. The content you add will show up side by side or in a grid-like format, depending on how many images, videos, or GIFs you add. You can see how this might look in these tweets shared by Twitter.
You can add up to four pieces of content in total, but it isn’t clear whether tweets shared off-platform will support this feature.
Earlier, users could only post one media per Tweet, but this July Twitter confirmed it was working on multimedia posts after reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi spotted the change in April. “We’re testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that will allow people to mix up to four media assets into a single tweet, regardless of format. 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,” the company said in a statement in July.
