Twitter is allowing test users to add extra media to their tweets
Regular Twitter users will know the frustration of only being able to add one image or video to tweets. Whether it’s to show an event, day out or just show off, running a thread can be annoying. On the bright side, Twitter is testing a new feature allowing up to four media assets in a single tweet.
According to a statement issued to TechCrunch, Twitter has recognised and is working on a potential option:
We’re testing a new feature with select accounts for a limited time that will allow people to mix up to four media assets into a single tweet, regardless of format,” a Twitter spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We’re seeing people have more visual conversations on Twitter and are using images, GIFs, and videos to make these conversations more exciting.
The move seems to come at a time when multimedia social platforms (Instagram and TikTok) are booming, as a way to help Twitter continue to remain among the leading social platforms.
