Twitter for a long time has stayed consistent with what it plans to do with the platform. Unlike other social media applications, Twitter keeps itself discrete and allows you to share your opinion within 280 character limit. It also brought the Spaces a few years back, which lets you create a public channel and express views in the audio format. Now, the platform appears to evolve as it is testing a new feature that lets you post images, videos, and GIFs in one single tweet.

“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,” said Twitter in a statement.
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,” the company continued.
Other than this, the company was recently found to be testing a Status-sharing feature that allows attach hashtags to share your status on the platform. With this feature, you will get some hashtags that you could post to show your status. It will include hashtags like “Vacation mode,” “Living the dream,” “Travelling,” etc. Twitter is yet to reveal when this feature will come to the public.
