Fans of animated GIF’s on Facebook (you know the ones, the annoying cat eating pasta and the endless animated Minions?) will be delighted to hear that they might soon be coming to Twitter.
A limited number of users on the iOS app have discovered they have a new option.
You can see it in the image below from a user who tweeted when he spotted it.
If you’re now scrabbling to find your phone and see if the option if available to you, we suspect you’l be disappointed.
It is being tested and deployment is low. However, we’d be very surprised if GIF’s don’t arrive on Twitter very soon.
People like them, they’d work on Twitter because of the burst and short message nature (at present) and it makes it easier for people to express an opinion with a click or two on the mobile app.
