Who doesn’t like a good GIF? Well, I hope you like them, because they’re now usable on a new social media platform.
Twitter has now given users the ability to upload GIFs. The cap for the file size is 5MB, a solid ceiling for most of the animated images. You just upload the GIFs in the same way you would any other picture.
Wait, you can now do GIFs in Twitter. The limit is 5MB for uploads. We're all screwed. http://t.co/yEcybczIRt

They show up as images with play buttons in timelines, so don’t worry about the obnoxious loading and motion of GIFs while scrolling through your feeds. You have to click play in order to see them.
Now, I’ll need to go through my folder of absurd GIFs in order to impress my nerd friends. BRB.
That’s “GIF,” with a hard G. Call the cops.
