(Pocket-lint) – It’s been a busy week at Twitter, the platform has started testing the edit button and it looks like Elon Musk is also pursuing his takeover.
But that’s not all, Twitter users around the world will now be able to combine images, videos and GIFs in the same message.
What’s more, this feature is not just for premium Twitter Blue subscribers, anyone can use it.
Previously, tweets could contain a single video or GIF animation or multiple images. Now, a single tweet can contain all three.

Twitter said in a blog post“we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to help creators share more and be seen. Mixing different types of visual content in a single Tweet allows creators to express themselves beyond 280 characters and their gives more ways to tell their story.”
The new feature is available in the Twitter iOS and Android apps, but there’s been no mention of desktop or third-party support yet.
Of course, the new media tweets can be viewed on all platforms, it is only the post that is limited to the app.
Twitter has also been hard at work implementing a new way to watch full screen vertical videos on the platform, but it’s limited to English-speaking iOS users, for now.
