Twitter now lets users capture their own GIFs in iOS app

Twitter rolls out a new feature to create GIFs directly from the in-app camera on iOS to allow users to share short clips on their timeline without having to upload a full video.

In order to capture a GIF in Twitter’s iOS app, you can click the new tweet button, then the camera icon. Then you will see the GIF option for a short recording. After you record your GIF, you can either play it front to back on loop, or you can make it loop like an Instagram Boomerang.

On whether the feature, currently only available on iOS, will come to Android, Twitter spokesperson Stephanie Cortez told The Verge that Twitter will be “gathering feedback to inform future updates,” but didn’t provide a timeline as to if or when that will happen.
