Twitter, the Micro-blogging site rolls out a new feature for users that lets them add images, videos and GIFs to their re-tweets. This new feature will be available for both Android and iOS user. This new feature was announced by Twitter itself on Monday.
The Twitter support posted, "It's easy to express yourself by re-tweeting with a comment. What if you could take it a step further and include media? Starting today, you can retweet with photos, a GIF, or a video to really make your reaction pop."
This new feature will be available on Twitter's mobile website as well.
According to the Verge that quoted a Twitter spokesperson as saying, "We found it was challenging for people to quickly understand all the content in a retweet with media. This was due to the layout; two large tweets stacked on top of each other".
The report added that, Twitter now puts the original tweet in a smaller, indented box with the user's avatar still visible making their media full width.
Details about desktop availability and functionality are still unclear. The report noted, "If you're seeing this on a desktop browser, it's not going to look quite right. Hopefully, Twitter will fix that before long".
