Get ready to see dancing cats and other ridiculous and entertaining distractions on Twitter.
“Last year, people on Twitter shared over 100 million GIFs — expressing everything from their mood, to an amazing dunk, to their favorite dance move from a music video. Now, sharing GIFs in Tweets and Direct Messages is even easier with our new GIF search,” Twitter senior product manager Sasank Reddy said in a blog post.
“Whenever you’re composing a Tweet or Direct Message, you can search and browse the GIF library. So if you’re looking for the perfect cat yawn or dance move to express exactly how you feel, just click the new GIF button. You can search by keyword, or browse categories of different reactions like Happy Dance, Mic Drop, or YOLO.”
The new feature will be rolling out worldwide over the coming weeks for those on iOS, Android or Twitter.com.
