Sorry Folks, Kiss Your Animated Twitter Avatars Goodbye

view story

http://techcrunch.com – I’ve never been a fan of animated avatars on any service, let alone Twitter. I am an avid user of the web client, and I cannot stand seeing things flash before my eyes along with 140 characters, but maybe I’m just a jerk. Twitter apparently didn’t like them either, and according to BuzzFeed, you can no longer use an animated GIF as an avatar on the service. RIP, weird flashing things. This is what BuzzFeed shared on the matter: My avatar still moves. New uploads, however, do not. The animated GIF avatar isn’t quite dead, but it appears to have been sentenced to death. T (IT news)
