Twitter is an American microblogging and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as “tweets”. Registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read those that are publicly available.

There are number of features in twitter app. Some of them are known to you and some of them aren’t. Are you making full use of twitter’s feature? You might be surprised at the amount of features that you’re not making use of. In this article we are going to discuss one of the features ‘Recording GIF from in-app camera in iOS.’

New Feature rolled out

A new feature has been rolled out by Twitter, in which Twitter now allows recording a GIF from your cameras in iOS. Twitter didn’t announce when the feature will roll out to Android users. This new feature could be a useful way to share short clips on the twitter. The feature of making GIFs from the iOS in-app camera is being rolled out in phases. The new feature comes after twitter had rolled back its decision to use a twin tab layout on microblogging platform last week.

How to Record a GIF on iPhone?

This feature could be useful to share short clips to your timeline without uploading a full video. It is very easy to record a GIF.

  • Open/ unlock your iPhone
  • Open Twitter app on your iPhone
  • Press the new tweet option
  • Click on the photo icon
  • Make sure the camera is on the GIF mode
  • Press the Record button

However, there is still not any proper way to easily share the GIFs off the platform. If you right-click the GIF, Twitter only shows the option to copy the address of the GIF. Thus, there is no option to save a GIF to your computer or phone.

That’s all for this topic.

Now, we’ll discuss some of the upcoming features of Twitter:

  1. Twitter communities: It is a new feature that allows users to create and join groups to engage in discussions about specific topics. The Subreddit/Facebook Group alternative segments Twitter feeds further by allowing users to send posts directly to a Community, rather than releasing it out for all to see on their feed.
  2. Twitter Blue: It is a monthly subscription service that gives Twitter users access to exclusive features, introducing bookmarks, custom app icons, new themes, and an undo button.
  3. Twitter Downvotes: Twitter has now begun rolling out downvotes for some users. Unlike likes or retweets, or Reddit’s downvotes, Twitter’s downvotes are not visible. Twitter claims downvotes will help decide whether the content is relevant, encouraging users to downvote content that “isn’t adding to the conversation”.
