If you’ve ever wanted to create a GIF from your iOS camera while using the Twitter app, today is your lucky day. Twitter announced that now we can do just that.
When composing a new tweet on iOS, click the camera button. You then have the option to choose between a photo, a video, and an animated GIF. Your GIF shot may not be very long – just a few seconds – but hey, it will probably come in handy once or twice?
After you’ve recorded your short GIF, you have the option to either loop it from front to back, or you can have it play like an Instagram boomerang by playing forward and then looping backwards. The world is your oyster, unless you want to create a GIF longer than two seconds.
Once you create the GIF, it will automatically be saved as a GIF in your Pictures folder on your Camera Roll – it’s not a video. Because it’s a GIF.
Twitter is releasing so many new features these days that it’s hard to keep track. Some recent updates that you may have missed include posting Clips from Spacesa potential upcoming spin on Instagram “Close Friends” list and some Timeline Algorithm snafus. Twitter hasn’t indicated when this GIF feature might roll out to Android, but Twitter usually will adds finally new updates for android users. Hopefully you too can post a GIF of your snake plant soon.
