The short video attached in the tweet mentioned ‘Every day millions of iOS Live Photos go unshared. They live in isolation, deep in forgotten albums. Today is a new day. Live Photos now have a home on Twitter.’ The users can simply select the Live Photo clicked from the iPhone and tap on the GIF button and post them with a text if required.
Give the gift of GIFs. You can now upload your iOS Live Photos as GIFs anywhere you upload photos on Twitter. https://t.co/D8TIfsBwyd

Live Photos, if you aren’t aware, was introduced with iOS 9 and the iPhone 6s back in 2016. These images are not your regular still shots but a three-second video files that are captured once the user presses the shutter button. The idea behind Live Photos was to share the moment with the ones who it is being sent to. That’s better than a single photo.
On a related note, Twitter has made another change on its website. The social media firm’s product executive recently tweeted that Twitter will now let users upload JPEG images in full resolution without any compression. The exec even added an image in the same tweet mentioning that the uploaded image retained 97% quality with no chroma subsampling. However, while users will see better images when opened, they will still see the transcoded thumbnail images that are not in high quality.
“We will still enforce limits, so images are not unbounded in file size or resolution, but those limits are very generous so that pretty much any 8-megapixel photo will be preserved and even up to 16 megapixels can be preserved (in square aspect ratio),” added the executive in further tweets.
