New Twitter Feature Will Help You Customize GIFs

While their pronunciation does have a tendency to cause some heated debates, the fact of the matter is that GIFs are a more or less intrinsic aspect of the way we communicate online. Twitter in particular is a place where people use GIFs quite often to get a point across, with the most common points having to do with injecting some humor into the various and numerous conversations that are being had on the platform all in all.

It turns out that Twitter is rolling out a feature that will enable you to inject a bit of your own personality into the Gifs that you are using. What this means is that you would be able to add some descriptive text into the Gif as opposed to using the text that is already built into the Gif. Not only is this going to make it easier to contextualize the Gifs that you are using but it’s also pretty clear that this will broaden the already numerous uses that Gifs have on the various social media platforms that people tend to use on a regular basis.

Twitter has been lagging behind its competitors for some time now, but in the past year or so it has seen a big resurgence. Updates and features like this are definitely going to make it a lot more likely that someone would want to use the platform, and this is a particularly smart move when you think about how it is going to improve the likelihood that users from the younger demographic are going to want to try the platform out. Twitter has been trying to target the younger demographic quite a bit in order to hit Facebook where it hurts, and this feature is definitely going to make it easier for them to meet this end.
