GIFs were created in 1987, according to Engadget. However, it is becoming increasingly popular.
When we want to share memorable clips from TV shows, movies, and news, or any exciting moments in life, many of us turn to GIFs.
Ok GIFs aren’t new but what *is new* is the option to capture your own using the in-app camera on iOS. pic.twitter.com/3Hl6q78e6s

If you’re a regular Twitter user, the service makes it more easy to make and share those clips. The Twitter app for iOS has been upgraded with a new version that has a built-in GIF capture feature.
To record one of your own clips, simply open the camera module and swipe into GIF mode. In the tweet that Twitter used to announce the update, you can see the functionality in action.
This feature is currently only available on iOS. When Engadget contacted Twitter to inquire about GIF support for Android, the company claimed the update would be available in the future (but didn’t specify when).
