Sharing animated GIFs on Twitter has been rather challenging, due to the fact that Twitter only let you share GIFs that were 5MB in size or less. As such, people would try and “optimize” their GIFs by taking out frames, removing colors, etc. Sadly, the results were usually pretty dismal.
Thankfully, Twitter has finally seen the error of their ways, and they have rectified this by increasing the size limit for GIFs to a whopping 15MB!
That’s right, you can now share high-quality GIFs without sacrificing quality or anything.. Now this update does come with some restrictions, like the fact that it’s only available on the desktop version of Twitter. If you’re on mobile or use a Twitter client like TweetDeck, Buffer or Hootsuite, you’re out of luck.. For now at least.
So what are you waiting for, it’s time to get on Twitter and start posting away! 🙂
