Other than the lengthy conversations that Twitter users are known for holding especially with Spaces now available, GIFs might very well be the next most popular phenomenon on the platform. And this is why since the meme-riddled media format was allowed on the platform, Twitter has been looking to improve the experience of using them. This was made clear when the social network officially added support for high-quality GIFs last year. Now, it looks like users will soon be able to make their own funny replies through their own in-app cameras.
Spotted by tipster Alessandro Paluzzi, the microblogging site is currently testing this feature by adding a GIF mode on the in-app camera. This will let you shoot very short clips that can then loop and probably even blow up as memes. This will obviously depend on how creative you are with your reactions.

According to the screenshots shared by Paluzzi, it looks like there will also be an option for users to make several takes until they’re satisfied with the final clip before posting.
Nothing is clear yet about the timeline of release or if it will even make it to the public. But it would be sad to not see such a feature see the light of day.
This comes at a time when Twitter has been quite busy introducing new features in a bid to improve users experience. This includes the full rollout of ticketed Spaces to iOS users. With this, chat room hosts can now get to charge attendees who wish to join exclusive sessions.
For hosts to do this though, they must have at least 1000 followers and must have hosted at least 3 Spaces in the last 30 days. Currently, the feature has been rolling out to iOS, which dictates just how much those hosts will be able to earn.
