Microblogging platform Twitter is testing a new feature that will allow users to attach media in multiple formats to a single tweet. With this feature, a user can add an image, video, and GIF to a single tweet.

According to GSM Arena, those who have been using Twitter for a while would know that the company has so far only supported one type of media.

While users could attach four images, there was no way to attach more than one video or GIF or mix them with the images.

With this update, the limit of four forms of media remains, but users can now have any combination of images, videos, and GIFs in these four slots.

Speaking to Techcrunch, Twitter said: “We are testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that will allow people to mix up to four media assets into a single tweet, regardless of format.”


They added, “We are seeing people having more visual conversations on Twitter and using images, GIFs and videos to make those conversations more exciting. With this test, we hope to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves. more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters.”

As usual for Twitter testing, the feature will only be available to certain accounts in certain regions. It’s not yet known when the feature will roll out to everyone, if at all, according to GSM Arena.
