Micro-blogging site Twitter has confirmed that it is testing a new feature that will allow users to post images, videos and GIFs in one multimedia tweet. The company confirmed the test and said it is available to some users for a limited time, adding that accounts can add tags to both photos and videos in the tweet, reports TechCrunch.
“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,” Twitter said. While some users have tweeted about the feature, it is not clear how different media would look in a single tweet.
“We are 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 are hoping to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters,” it added.
Recently, Twitter confirmed that it is testing a new status feature that lets users tag posts with pre-defined labels, much like the statuses that the previous LiveJournal and MySpace systems permitted.
