Twitter now lets you mix videos, photos, and GIFs in a single tweet

It’s time to advance your meme game to the next level. On Wednesday, Twitter announced a new feature that allows users to share different types of visual content, such as videos, images, and GIFs, within one tweet. Tweet may have been deleted (opens in a new tab) The feature, which is live on iOS and Android, works as follows: while composing a tweet, tap either the Media or GIF icons and select what you want to share. The resulting “mixed media” tweets will work on all platforms, Twitter said.There are limits, though: you can only add up to four images, videos, and GIFs per tweet. The feature follows Twitter’s recent foray into video. The company recently launched a new video viewer, which shows full-screen videos and allows users to discover more videos by scrolling upwards. Twitter also added a carousel with suggested videos to choose from, which is prominently featured in Twitter’s Explore tab. For some examples of tweets with mixed media content, check this tweet, this tweet, and this tweet.
