Twitter as of now allows users to share a single media file in a tweet. This means that you can either share a video, an image or a GIF in a single tweet but not all of them. But that changes today as the company has started rolling out the feature that lets users share multiple media files, which includes a GIF, a video and an image in a single tweet.

While Twitter users can add multiple media files in a single tweet, this feature comes with certain limits. Twitter, in a blog post, wrote that users can add up to four videos, images, or GIFs in a single Tweet.

Coming to the availability, the micro-blogging platform said that the update is currently available on iOS and Android. However tweets with different content types can be viewed on all platforms.

It is worth noting that this feature was first discovered by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi back in April this year. The company officially started testing it in July this year before starting to roll it out to all users globally this week.

Separately, Twitter has also announced its that videos on users’ timelines will open in our full screen immersive video player wherein they can swipe up to keep discovering more content. This feature, however, is available only in the company’s iOS-based app.

The company also said that some iOS and Android users will also see recommended content in a new video carousel on the Explore “For You” page. Users will be able to go back to scrolling by tap the back arrow in the top left corner to exit the player.
