YouTube is launching new features allowing users to add text, live videos, images and gifs to channels.

The community tab "gives you a new, simple way to engage with your viewers and express yourself beyond video," according to YouTube.

The company's been secretly testing the features with a small group of video creators.

The updated functions will be available beyond the test group at some point in the "months ahead".

"Community is a special release for us because it represents the deepest product collaboration we've ever done with creators like you," the firm says on its blog.

Each Community page effectively allows YouTubers to run a mini-social network on their channel page.

The changes will allow users to be more expressive in their tweets

Changes to Twitter's 140-character limit for tweets will come into effect on 19 September, according to reports, after which media attachments, handles and quoted tweets will no longer be included in the cap.

The company announced in May that it planned to relax the rules surrounding its character limit for tweets, but didn't say exactly when this would happen.

The new date comes from the Verge, which cites sources familiar with Twitter's business operations.

The changes means things like photos, GIFs, videos and polls will no longer count as characters within tweets.

Additionally when replying to a tweet, @names will no longer count towards the 140-character limit.

I understand that some gifs autoplay, but some don't.

Is there anyway to make it autoplay no matter what?

Andy explains in the post that the company is hoping the native image tool will make the Reddit experience more seamless.

"For a long time, other image hosting services have been an integral part of how content is shared on Reddit—we re grateful to those teams, but are looking forward to bringing you a more seamless experience with this new feature," he writes.

Also, users will have to do less tapping to see images and media from within Reddit's mobile apps since they'll be staying within the app the entire time.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Imgur emphasized the strength of its own community and how Reddit users can still upload with Imgur if they please.

We re super focused on our mission to surface up the world s most entertaining content and making Imgur the best visual community in the world.

A statement from Reddit echoed the choice that users have going forward: "For many years, Imgur has been an integral part of Reddit—we are grateful to them for enabling our users to share the things they love and have a richer content experience.

The Democrats lost the election, and now they re just trying to pick up the pieces.

The party s current social media strategy is unfortunate—using reaction gifs to warn of the horror a Trump presidency might bring.

Reaction gifs, Ashley Feinberg wrote Gizmodo in May, are for idiots: Gifs are always going to be a little bit obnoxious...

It serves no funny, clever, particularly expressive purpose.

In the case of the Democrats, these gifs have more sinister connotations.

It s disturbing to see a Leslie Knope gif attached to tweet about Trump using the presidency to further his business interests.

We use them at Buffer in our customer service tweets, our emails, our Slack channel.

And what s more, we ve found GIFs get great results!

One of our most popular transactional emails we send to customers features a GIF.

Then, once your images are uploaded you can choose the order in which they should appear in your GIF and the length of time the still images will appear in your slideshow before going to the next image.

Imgflip is similar to Gifmaker.me and enables you to create a GIF from multiple images and also turn video into a GIF.
