Twitter may soon allow posting images, videos in one tweet : The Tribune India


San Francisco, July 30

Twitter has confirmed that it is testing a new feature that will allow users to put images, videos and GIFs in a single multimedia tweet.

The company confirmed the test, saying it will be available to some users for a limited time, adding that accounts can add tags to both photos and videos in the tweet, TechCrunch reports.

“We are testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that allows people to mix up to four media items in a single tweet, regardless of format,” the microblogging site said in a statement.

While some users have tweeted about the feature, it’s not clear what different media would look like in a single tweet.

“We’re seeing people have more visual conversations on Twitter and are using images, GIFs and videos to make these conversations more exciting,” the company said.

“With this test, we hope to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter than 280 characters,” it added.

Twitter recently confirmed that it is testing a new status feature that allows users to tag posts with predefined labels, much like the statuses that the previous LiveJournal and MySpace systems allowed.

Some of these statuses include “Spoiler Alert”, “Shower Thoughts”, “Picture of the Day” and for some reason the very redundant “Current Status”.
