Twitter is in tests that allow photos, GIFs and videos in the same Tweet • ENTER.CO

Since we started 2022, Twitter developers had something clear: add a number of new functions; since then we have seen some of them that are already in tests. This time, it’s a feature that allows you to post videos, GIFs, and images in one tweet. Until now, the social network only allowed us to post a single type of media file per tweet.

Although the function was exposed in April by application researcher Alessandro Paluzzi in April, it was until now that the media noticed it. Also, as reported on TechCrunch, this feature, unlike some others that users have revealed, was confirmed by Twitter. The company commented that it is currently available to a select group of users, in addition to announcing that tags can be added to the photos and videos of the trill.

“We are testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that will allow people to mix up to four media assets in a single Tweet, regardless of format. We’re seeing people having more visual conversations on Twitter and using images, GIFs, and videos to make these 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,” the company said in a statement.

However, we are still left wondering what the feature looks like in practice. Based on Paluzzi’s trill, we know that users will see different media in a carousel in the tweet editor, all of which can be easily added, removed, or rearranged. However, to really know how it works, we must wait if it passes the threshold; if so, it would soon reach all users around the world.

The truth is that this is added to the multiple functions that the application is testing, such as the co-authoring of tweets called co-tweets. Or the one we met yesterday, which allows us to include label-type states such as “unpopular opinion”, “vacation mode”, “spoiler alert”, among others.
