The application of Twitter for iOS wants to make it easier for you to share your own GIFs. The most recent version of the application now lets you create animations using the camerawithout having to leave the social network. Without a doubt, we are facing an addition that is not revolutionary, but that is presented as very useful.
Keep in mind that GIFs have become a very popular reaction method on Twitter. We may use them both in our tweets, as in replies or when quoting third party posts. In fact, the platform allows us to choose animations from a large catalog, but it wants to go a little further.
Twitter knows that many times there will be no better way to express ourselves than through our own GIFs, and for this reason, it has decided to integrate the option to create them into iOS. And best of all, it’s a very simple process.
As posted via account Twitter supportto create an animation just tap the camera icon and go to the GIF optiondisplayed alongside the traditional Capture and Video. Once created, users will be able to preview it to verify that the end result is as desired; if so, they can insert it directly into the tweet or reply, or they can redo it.
The option to create GIFs is the latest addition to Twitter
With the arrival of GIF creation from iOS, Twitter is taking another step in including new features in its mobile apps. Anyway, It is not yet known when this particular feature will come to the version for Android devices.; however, it is likely that there will be more news soon.
In recent times, the social network has integrated other characteristics which propose to push the user experience a little further. In February, for example, the extension of the scope of the “Dislike” button was announced; it allows us to downvote replies to our tweets – in the best Reddit style – so Twitter knows we find them offensive or don’t like them. The idea is that it serves more feedback between us and the platform, than as a method of interaction between people. For the latter, remember that the company is working on the implementation of different types of reactions, such as those used on Facebook.
Another feature that recently debuted on Twitter is one that lets you trim clips of up to 30 seconds from recorded gaps. Just like creating GIFs, is limited to iOS app usersat least for now.
It is also important to mention that the social network comes from the reversal of the changes in the timeline, after the negative reviews of the users. Thus, Twitter allowed to choose the classic chronological mode again, after having briefly tried to divide the home screen in two: one with the tweets ordered via the algorithm, and another with the most recent publications.
