Twitter Test feature to add multiple media types in a single tweet

The micro-blogging platform Twitter is testing a new feature that allows users to attach media in multiple formats to a single tweet.

With this feature, a user can add a photo, video, and GIF to a single tweet. According to the GSM Arena, those who have used Twitter for any length of time will know that the company so far only supports one type of attached media. While users could attach four photos, there was no way to attach more than one video or GIF or mix them with photos.

With this update, the limit of four forms of media is still there but users can now get any combination of photos, videos and GIFs within these four slots.

“We are testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that allows people to combine up to four media assets into a single tweet, regardless of format,” Twitter said. “We are seeing that people are 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 incorporate these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters.”

As usual in Twitter tests, the feature will only be available to select accounts in select regions. There’s no word yet on when the feature will roll out to everyone, if any.
