Twitter is testing adding multiple media content in a single tweet
Twitter is testing a feature that will soon allow users to attach multiple media formats into a single tweet.
With this feature, users will be able to insert videos, images and GIFs into a tweet which was not possible before.
The attachment limit will still be limited to four, but instead of just images, users can now have either a mix of formats or only videos or GIFs. From now on, users can only attach a single video or GIF to a tweet.
Twitter said in a statement, “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.”
He also added, “We are seeing people having more visual conversations on Twitter and using images, GIFs and videos to make those conversations 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.
Recently, Twitter also began testing for a select group of users in the US and Australia to set a “status” for individual tweets from a finite list of options, which include “spoiler alert”. , “AMA”, “hot plug”, “vacation mode”, “unpopular opinion”, “soon”, “work hard, work barely”, and “shower thoughts”. The options are also clickable and can take you to public tweets that used the same status.
Earlier in July, Twitter also announced its tests to allow users to co-author tweets, which could benefit content creators and brands.
Twitter seems to have adopted the above two features from Meta (the first from Facebook and the second from Instagram) while Meta isn’t very slyly focused on the new TikTok.
