Twitter has introduced a feature that allows users to create GIFs from an in-app camera on iOS. The new feature could be an effective way to share short clips across platforms. The option to create GIFs from in-app cameras is being phased out. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The new feature comes after Twitter last week reversed its decision to use the twin-tab layout on the microblogging platform.
The option to create GIFs using an in-app camera eliminates the need to upload entire videos as it allows users to share short clips in their timeline. To create a GIF on the Twitter iOS app, press the New Tweet button, then the photo icon, then tap the camera icon, make sure GIF mode is selected, and then press and hold the record button.
According to The Verge, there is still no way to easily share GIFs outside the platform. If you right-click GIF, Twitter only shows the option to copy the GIF address. So there is no option to save a GIF on your computer or phone.
The feature is slowly being rolled out to iOS users at the moment. It is not clear when the feature will be launched on Android.
Last week, Twitter reversed its decision to use a twin-tab layout on the microblogging platform and reverted to the original layout that shows the latest tweets at the top. The Twin-Tab layout – which began rolling out earlier this month – was designed to push users into an algorithmically served timeline instead of a reverse-chronological feed. The decision sparked a backlash as several users shared criticism of the change, even calling it “the worst product decision on Twitter in a decade.”
