Twitter is finally rolling out an all-new feature that will allow users to combine gifs, photos, videos, and memes in a single tweet on both Android and iOS devices. In a blog post, the company said it is giving everyone the ability to share multiple types of media in a single Tweet.
This feature will roll out globally to iOS and Android, with a chance to see mixed media Tweets on the web,” the company said in a blog post late on Wednesday.

The function shall be obtainable solely by the app for Android and iOS. Twitter believes mixing visible content material “empowers creators to precise past the 280-character restrict” however since it isn’t but obtainable on desktop, it’s going to restrict company accounts and different customers, counting on third-party posting platforms.
There isn’t a such restriction on how the content material will be consumed – anybody can learn and watch the tweets and the accompanying media, no matter whether or not they’re on the desktop website or cellular website, or any official or unofficial app.
The feature was first spotted by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi in April. Previously, anyone who wanted to share different media formats would have to do it in different Tweets or threads. Now, when people open the Tweet composer, they can select and upload a combination of up to four types of media – photos, memes, GIFs, and videos – and publish them all together.
“They can also rearrange the layout of their media while composing the Tweet,” said the micro-blogging platform.” Tap the photo icon in the Tweet composer to start mixing your media,” it added. The Explore tab video carousel currently helps people find more videos they would like alongside Tweets and Trends that might interest them. It is currently available to people in select countries using Twitter in English on iOS and Android.
The company said that the updated immersive media viewer expands videos to full screen with a single click, allowing people to easily access the full, immersive viewing experience. “To activate it, people who access Twitter on iOS simply need to tap or click on a video in the Twitter app,” it said.
