Twitter is introducing a new way to share different types of visual content — videos, images, and GIFs — together in a single Tweet.
Adding “mixed” media to a Tweet is simple and straightforward. 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.
Making Twitter the best place to share media
This update is the latest example of how they’re working to make Twitter the easiest and most convenient place to share images, videos, and other creative content. It 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.
