Twitter increases GIF size limit to 15MB

Twitter gives GIF users some love with increased GIF size limit, restricted to web users only

By: Sean Ridgeley from Jul 12, 2016 @ 11:12 CDT

Twitter, in its perpetual quest to loosen up its restrictions, has increased its GIF size limit to 15MB from 5MB for web users; mobile users will still enjoy the 5MB limit, and photo uploads are still limited to 5MB on the web.


Also, if you haven't noticed, Twitter now supports GIF searching à la Facebook Messenger.

In recent times, the service has stopped including images, videos, and usernames in its 140 character limit, abandoned the character limit altogether for direct messages, and increased its video length limit from 30 seconds to 140 seconds.
