Twitter will now let you retweet with GIFs, photos, and video.

While most of us on Twitter are still asking for an edit feature, a certain group of Twitter users will find a reason to be happy. Starting today, Twitter will let you include images, videos, and the most demanded of them all,  GIFs to your retweets and quote tweets!

According to tweets from Twitter Engineering, the feature while it seemed simple required a bit of work in terms of readability. During the first usability test, Twitter found it was challenging for people to quickly understand all the content in a Retweet with media. This was due to the layout; two large Tweets stacked on top of each other.

The final design feature now has a clearer visual hierarchy with a condensed inner Tweet, including an avatar in the inner Tweet to give more context helping you quickly see who’s talking and a simple box container for easier interactions.

The engineering team also confirmed that another update was coming soon to make retweets with media more interactive and easier to read.
