Twitter will allow to combine images, videos and gifs in a single tweet

That on Twitter they have decided to become an instance of Facebook I think I have already commented on it, right? Yes, true, it was just yesterday, when we echoed that the social network is testing a new status function associated with tweets, which is just the latest in an endless list of experiments launched by Twitter during the last year. A string of tests that, although in some cases are very interesting, in others they seem a mere call for attention or, perhaps, the need to demonstrate that they want to innovate. And yes, it is true that for years Twitter has hardly released new functions, but it is no less true that, for a significant part of its users, these were not necessary.

These changes, this sum of functions, leads us to what I mentioned at the beginning, to the transmutation of Twitter into Facebook and, as I said yesterday, this is neither a good thing nor a bad thing, this consideration must be made individually by each user of the service. Personally, I do think that giving up your identity, your most characteristic feature, which is precisely what attracted the bulk of your users over the years, is an ill-advised move.

Be that as it may, the addition of new functions continues, as we can see by the tweet by Manuel Bartual in which he echoes that it is now possible to add several animated gifs in a single message

Pulling the thread a bit (semi-apocryphal reference to the more than popular Bartual threads on Twitter), we have verified that the test is broader, since it allows multiple images, animated gifs and videos to be included in the same tweet. The maximum number of these that can be included in each message is not clear, but in view of the test published by Bartual, we see that the mole will have at least four elements.

“We are testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that will allow people to mix up to four media assets in a single Tweet, regardless of format. We’re seeing people having more visual conversations on Twitter and using images. , GIFS and videos to make these conversations more exciting. With this test, we hope to learn how people combine these different media formats to express themselves more creatively on Twitter beyond 280 characters.the company said in a statement.
