Twitter has announced today that it is adding a new dedicated GIF button that will allow Twitter users to quickly and easily find the right GIFs to add to their tweets and Direct Messages. The button will allow the user to browse an inventory of GIFs by using a keyword or by rummaging through categories.
The GIFs are being provided by Twitter partners GIPHY and Riffsy. You should be able to find the perfect GIF to convey the meaning of your tweet or Direct Message from their large library of animated images. Twitter said that over 100 million GIFs were tweeted last year.
The dedicated GIF button will start rolling out today to Twitter users on iOS, Android and on Twitter.com.
