(Pocket-lint) – According to a new leak from Alessandro Paluzzi, who is used to spotting these features, Twitter may be working on a new way to share varied content in a single Tweet.
He posted a screenshot of a tweet being composed, with several types of content added, including a GIF, video, and image file.

The files appear to be laid out in a gallery, as if the author had only added a few images, and one would assume that people viewing the tweet would be able to scroll through them.
Paluzzi says he first saw references to this feature in the app’s backend on Android a few years ago, but it’s only recently that more material has surfaced about it, including the intro screen which you can see below.

It is therefore more than likely that this feature will soon be available to users, although Twitter itself has not said anything to give us concrete information about it.
If and when it happens, the ability to attach multiple types of media to a tweet will make things easier, instead of requiring you to create a thread to include them all, and will likely be welcomed by creators.
