Twitter now lets iOS users record their own GIFs straight in the app, allowing millennials to create reaction GIFs of themselves to fully embrace their cheugy

“We view GIF capture as a feature that gives people another media-forward way to creatively express themselves,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to Mashable. “For our creators, GIF capture will also serve as a new tool to produce entertaining content for their audience on Twitter.”

The global update is currently only being tested on iOS, with an Android rollout expected to follow soon.

How to film a GIF in Twitter on iOS

Here’s how to film a GIF in Twitter’s iOS app that would make Gen Z cringe:

  1. Open the Twitter app.

  2. Either tap the blue “+” symbol to start a new tweet, or tap the speech bubble below someone else’s tweet to reply to it. If you’re posting a reply, tap the picture symbol in the bottom left corner to open your photo album.

  3. Tap the camera icon. Swipe to select the GIF option if necessary, frame your scene, then hit the round red record button. Twitter will automatically stop recording after around half a second and create your GIF.

  4. Choose from two arrow icons at the top of the screen to determine how you want your GIF to play: the arrow pointing right will make it loop from the beginning (“→”), while the arrows pointing both left and right will make it play forward and then in reverse. (“⇄”)

  5. Tap “Use GIF,” then type out your accompanying tweet and post it as usual.

GIFs can’t be edited in the Twitter app but they are saved to your phone’s camera roll, letting you export them elsewhere to edit if you so choose.
