Twitter working on new mixed-media tweet feature

Twitter working on new mixed-media tweet feature

San Francisco: Micro-blogging site Twitter is all set to upgrade its features to make it more user-friendly and accessible. The new features include mix-media tweets, edit options and more.

This week 9To5Google reported that Android users would be provided support for inserting both videos and images in the same tweet, which was not available earlier. They also hinted at the introduction of a new tweet 'awards' feature.

As it stands today, tweets with media can include a gallery of up to four photos or a single video, with no mix of the two. Even with this new ability to mix media, tweets can still only house up to four pieces of media, the report said.

The report mentioned that Twitter seems to finally be making it possible to tweet both a picture and a video in the same tweet.

The other major new addition uncovered was "awards" for tweets.

While the exact details on how this feature will work are still unclear, Developer Dylan Roussel found a button that will allow users to give an award to a tweet and evidence that a tweet will show the number of rewards it has been given.

This appears to be similar to Reddit awards, and it seems entirely possible this could be a benefit of Twitter Blue or another form of monetisation for the social network.

Meanwhile, recent reports said that Twitter is working on the edit button, as requested by its users as well as Elon Musk, but the micro-blogging platform is reportedly going to keep a digital trace of your earlier tweets.

App researcher and reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong had said in a tweet that the edit button might have an "immutable" quality.
