There's a hack that lets you post two or multiple GIFs on Twitter in one tweet... and it involves turning a GIF into an animated PNG.

Good news everyone, you can now post multiple GIFs on Twitter in one tweet, thanks to a genius new hack.

As anyone who has ever logged onto Tumblr will know, GIF sets are a thing of beauty. On Tumblr, you can add multiple GIFs of a scene in a TV show or a music video into one post and when it shows up on your dashboard, it looks pretty damn amazing. Now, you can kiiiind of do the same thing on Twitter.

The Twitter multiple GIF hack involves converting your GIF files into APNGs (Animated Portable Network Graphics), which Twitter is able to recognise as image files instead of GIF files.

How do you post multiple GIFs on Twitter?

Thanks to Twitter user @thugiyfe, the steps to posting two GIFs are pretty easy.

First of all, you need to find your GIFs and save them to your camera roll.

Then, you need to upload those GIFs into a GIF convertor. This will change your moving images from GIFs to APNGs. (APNG files count as images, which is why it lets you upload multiple.) You can find the converter here:

Save those files. Log on to Twitter on Safari.

Upload your files into the text box (like all tweets, you can add up to four APNG files), send the tweet and BAM! You've just tweeted multiple GIFs.

Here's a visual example, for those who are still confused, screen recorded by Twitter user @habibijoon.

It's a bit of a long way around but the results are absolutely incredible, and people have already been having way too much fun creating their multiple GIF tweets.

You can use the feature to tweet two separate GIFs, spread one GIF over two image slots or, you can add four GIFs and go absolutely crazy.

Here are some of the best examples:

Some people are reporting that the feature no longer works but others are saying that it works just fine. According to several Twitter users, the feature does not work on Android phones. Sorry about it.

Happy multiple GIF-ing!
