The GIFs will not become animated without the viewer clicking on them. This is a useful addition because it will save you bandwidth if necessary. Once you have clicked on the GIF, it will stay animated on a loop until the viewer clicks it again. If you are accessing Twitter through your PC or Android device the GIFs will still be available.

Using GIFs on Twitter makes this social app even more fun.  These looped images have become more popular in recent times with the rise of list-type articles being read and shared through social networks, an example of which is BuzzFeed. The GIFs are often created using images from TV shows, films and viral videos which makes their appeal huge.

It was only this week that Facebook enabled it’s users to send GIFs in messages but this move puts Twitter ahead of Facebook as they do not yet do not support timeline GIFs.
