No matter how you want to pronounce it (it’s s hard “G,” by the way), I think we can all agree that GIFs general make our social networks a little more fun. We’re not sure what took so long, but in a back-end update to Twitter on both the web and its mobile apps, the microblogging network now officially supports GIFs.
This means you can upload these moving pictures using the native Twitter client and watch as they animate in the app. To be clear, GIFs wont load while in the timeline view (in an effort to not eat up all your data), only when clicking on a tweet to view it’s media will you be presented with the moving GIF. And move, they shall.
