Twitter allows you to add GIFs, videos and images to your retuits

It’s no mystery that Twitter takes a long time to evolve and we already saw how long it took for to increase the number of characters in the tweets from 140 to 280 . Another new feature that is taking some time to arrive, although we are asking for it every few months, is the possibility of editing our messages on this social network. Anyway one of the most recent news we have seen is the possibility of adding GIFs, images or videos when we do a retweet, something we didn’t understand.

It is increasingly common for us to communicate on social networks through images, videos or the famous GIFs . Users were already claiming to be able to incorporate these means of graphic support when making an ‘RT’ and although they have been slow in doing so, it has finally arrived.

In order to make use of this feature we have to update our application to the latest version available on both iOS and Android. When we give Retuitear a particular message and if it is the first time we use this function we will get a small dialog box that will inform us of this new function of doing RT using a GIF, video or a photograph.

As you can see in the image when we do RT at the bottom we can add a GIF, an image or a video as if we were creating a normal tweet. This gives the user the possibility to express himself in a non-restrictive way when sharing a content with a text, but he will be able to express his emotions with all the available tools.

If it took so many months to add this seemingly logical feature, how long will it take to incorporate tweet editing? If you haven’t received this feature yet, you’d better wait patiently as it’s expanding progressively.
