Twitter announced through its support account today that users can new share and view animated GIFs on Twitter.com, and in its Android and iPhone apps.

With Vines already becoming a big part of the Twitter experience, this seems like a natural, if not long overdue fit.
It was possible to share and view animated gifs through Twitter using third party apps in the past, but Twitter finally decided to just support them on its own.
I imagine our Twitter experience at large is about to get a whole lot more motion.
