Twitter with multiple content elements will offer up side-by-side or in a grid. In addition, you can load even more content into a single tweet.
Twitter’s rolling out a new feature on Android and iOS that lets you combine text, photos, videos, and GIFs in a single tweet.
The quality was first spotted by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi back in April, with Twitter later confirming it was working on multimedia posts in July. But unfortunately, you could only share one piece of media per tweet.
Now that the feature is here, you must tap the photo icon in the tweet composer and add the media of your choice. The content you add will show up side by side or in a grid-like format, depending on how many images, videos, or GIFs you add. You can see how this might look in these tweets shared by Twitter.
You may include Twitter’s multimedia tweet in this post, but it only shows one of the two pieces of content contained in the tweet and appears the same way when you share it with your colleagues on Slack.
When you try out the feature for yourself, you will find that you can add up to four pieces of content. It’s unclear whether tweets shared off-platform will support this feature, though.
Even with the drama surrounding Elon Musk’s potential acquisition of Twitter, the platform hasn’t stopped rolling out new features. For example, it recently launched “immersive” full-screen videos on iOS and an endless video stream you can access through its Explore tab.
Twitter also started giving Blue subscribers in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand the ability to edit their tweets and is testing an option to attach Status badges to your tweets.
Affixing an account to a number is one form to emphasize that it was created with more effort than the most detailed macro and could be used to screen out which tweets seem the most prominently or make it through the diverse levels of quality filters.
Twitter also allows people to have the same phone number associated with up to ten other accounts. At the same time, creators can label automated accounts to let people know there isn’t a human after each post.
Verified “blue check” accounts must already have a phone number or email address. When then-CEO Jack Dorsey spoke about plans to allow verification for everyone, he noted having people verify facts about themselves. It could’ve been similar to how services like Airbnb and Tinder use phone numbers as parts of their account verification procedure.
An accurate and up-to-date phone number and email address is a critical step you can take to guarantee you never lose access to your account. Take a moment to ensure the phone number is up to date, especially if you are about to switch your phone number or device. If you don’t hold an email address associated with your account yet, keep your account even more secure by adding an email address.
