Twitter announced the new feature on Monday.
The new function comes after months of work and repeated requests from users, according to Twitter’s product design and research team.
“The most exciting part of this project was that we were working on a feature that many people asked for,” Twitter’s design team said. “We’re very excited to launch this feature across Twitter, and we can’t wait to see it being used by all of you.”
The new addition is simple and just as easy to use as the current quote tweet function.
How to add GIFs, photos, or videos to your quote tweets
First, press the retweet icon under any tweet and select “Retweet with comment.” Next, choose the media or GIF icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. After finding the GIF, photo, or video you’d like to use, simply click the “Retweet” button, and you’re done!
It's easy to express yourself by Retweeting with a comment. What if you could take it a step further and include media? Starting today, you can! Retweet with photos, a GIF, or a video to really make your reaction pop. Available on iOS, Android, and https://t.co/AzMLIfU3jB. pic.twitter.com/Oir5Hpkb2F— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) May 6, 2019
Before the addition, Twitter users were only able to make an original tweet or reply to a tweet with photos and videos.
While the option is not available for desktop users, Twitter announced the new update is only the beginning.
“Another update is coming soon to make Retweets with media more interactive and easier to read,” Twitter wrote. “We’re also exploring more ways to help people express themselves. Stay tuned!”
