Twitter is getting more and more creative with its news and, yesterday, it presented a new function: the possibility of combining images, GIF’s and videos in a single tweet, available for Android and iOS.
Get ready to mix it up with visuals on Twitter.
You can now add a combination of media to your Tweet on Android and iOS. That means you can include a photo, GIF, and video (or two!) all in the same Tweet. Tap the photo icon in the Tweet composer to start mixing your media.

Until now, the platform only allowed users to include a single multimedia format in the same post, for example, several images. But they mentioned that “sometimes you need more than one type of media format to be able to express yourself”.
In the same publication, they shared that this is an example of the efforts they are making to turn Twitter into the most convenient and easy social network to share images, videos, and other types of creative content.
In addition, this novelty is complemented by the launch of two new video products: full-screen videos and a new video carousel in the “explore” tab, which make it easier for people to find and observe what is happening on Twitter.

However, this feature is only available for mobile devices and cannot be done on a computer yet.
This is how Internet users have received this new possibility to tweet:
