Twitter developers have been exceptionally proactive recently, with them getting updates and news about new features set to be introduced regularly. The most one came in when the microblogging platform, in a statement, confirmed that the users would soon be able to post multimedia Tweets. This update to the platform first surfaced in April earlier this year. Now, it has been confirmed to be in testing.
This means that with this feature, the users will be able to add multiple forms of media to a single Tweet. It would eliminate the need for users to create a thread of Tweets to post multiple forms of media in a single Tweet. Till now, users have been able to add only a single form of media to a Tweet. This means that, at the moment, users can add either a video or a GIF or an Image file to a Tweet. If you wanted to post multiple different forms of media in a single Tweet, for example, while covering an event, it wasn’t possible. This update aims to solve this issue.
Multimedia Tweets – Still In Testing
Commenting on this, Twitter said, “We’re 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. We’re seeing people have more visual conversations on Twitter and are using images, GIFS and videos to make these conversations more exciting. With this test, we’re hoping to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters.”
The feature is still in the testing phase, so it will take some time to be released to the public. However, it remains to be seen the ways in which it is utilised and received by the fans of the platform.
