Right now, Twitter allows users to post multiple images within a single tweet. But what if you wanted to post images and videos at the same time? That is currently not possible without splitting those tweets up, but that could change soon.
According to a report from TechCrunch, it appears that Twitter is testing out a new feature that would allow users to post multiple media types within a single tweet, meaning that you could post videos, images, and even GIFs at once without Twitter forcing you to split them up into multiple tweets.
This was actually discovered back in April by developer Alessandro Paluzzi, but Twitter has since confirmed that this is a feature that they are currently testing. According to a statement made by Twitter:
“We’re 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. We’re 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’re hoping to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters.”
Not everyone will be given access to this feature, so if you don’t see it available to you yet, don’t worry, it’s normal. The company does not mention when the feature is expected to be rolled out for everyone, but presumably this will be based on how well the tests go, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
