Did you happen to share a GIF on Twitter recently?  Well you probably aren’t alone.

Over the last year more than 100 million GIFs were tweeted out for one reason or another.

On February 17, 2016 Twitter announced on their official blog that sending GIFs would become more user-friendly within the app.  Twitter has integrated the massive GIF databases of millennial household names, GIPHY and Riffsy, by including a GIF search function within the app.

This update will be rolling out over the next few weeks so it will be some time until it is running at full steam.

Android and iOS users alike can take advantage of the new service, but there is no word on Windows Phone users despite having an official app developed by Twitter.

You will eventually be able to utilize the GIF search on as well.  As of right now Twitter’s website does not allow it just yet.

If you are an Android or iOS user go share a GIF in a tweet or direct message because the service is already available.
