How to put a GIF in a Tweet


How the tutorial was made

I made this tutorial using QuickTime Player by creating a new screen recording. From there, my desktop screen was recorded as I take you through the steps of what putting a GIF in a tweet entails. Though it's easy to do, I don’t feel like a lot of people know about it because it is a feature that Twitter recently added. After recording the screen, I uploaded the file to my YouTube account and made it public for everyone to see. The entire process took 10 minutes or less. With just a few clicks, something so visually appealing can be seen on your tweets.

About tutorials

I find tutorials to be extremely useful when trying to figure out how to do something. By watching someone else do it, it is easier to pick up and follow along with his or her instructions. You also retain a lot of information by seeing and listening at the same time, able to do it on your own the next time.

Why I chose it

I chose this tutorial because Twitter is a popular social media site that is used by everyone around the world. If you use Twitter, you need to be able to utilize all of the features that it offers. Putting a GIF in a tweet is something that will add a little zest to your tweets. It can make your followers pay closer attention to what you are saying. There’s nothing wrong with adding a little spice to your Twitter page! Twitter has done all of the hard work for you. They’ve even categorized the GIFs and created a system to where you can search for specific people, emotions, places or anything you could possibly want. A GIF can go with any tweet and it can help your social media presence.
