Text, photographs, videos, and GIFs may now be combined in a single tweet thanks to a new feature that is being rolled out by Twitter on both the Android and iOS platforms. Alessandro Paluzzi, a reverse engineer, was the first person to discover the capability back in April.
Twitter later confirmed in July that it was working on implementing support for multimedia posts. In the past, you were only permitted to share a single piece of media per tweet.
Because the functionality is now available, all that is required of you is to select the photo icon within the tweet composer and then upload the type of media of your choosing.
Depending on how many images, videos, or GIFs you upload, the content you add will either appear in a grid-like manner or in a side-by-side layout on the page. You may get an idea of how this would appear from the tweets that Twitter has posted.
After giving the function a try for myself, I discovered that you have the ability to contribute a total of up to four different pieces of content. However, it is unknown whether tweets that are shared on a platform other than Twitter will support this capability.
It only displays one of the two pieces of content that were included in the tweet, and it appeared the same way when I shared it with my coworkers on Slack. I included Twitter’s multimedia tweet in this post, but it only shows one of the two pieces of content that were included in the tweet.
Even though there has been a lot of controversy surrounding Elon Musk’s possible takeover of Twitter, the platform has continued to roll out new features. It just released “immersive” full-screen videos on iOS, as well as an unlimited video stream that can be accessed through the Explore tab of the app.
Twitter has also begun providing Blue members in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand with the opportunity to modify their tweets, and the social networking service is now testing an option that allows users to attach Status badges to their tweets.
