iPhone owners, you've now got another place to share your Live Photos.
Twitter now lets iPhones upload their Live Photos as GIFs. It works anywhere you can upload photos on Twitter and is almost as simple as posting a photo. Just start composing your tweet, select the Live Photo from your iPhone's camera roll, and press the GIF button in the lower left corner. Your Live Photo will be transformed into a GIF that's easier for those on other platforms to view.
Live Photos have been around for years now, but because it's an iPhone feature, it can be a pain to share good Live Photos with your non-iPhone friends. What's more, Live Photos are turned on by default, so some iPhone owners may be taking Live Photos without realizing it. Now those people can easily share any Live Photos that they may have taken to Twitter for everyone to see.
