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".
