Twitter Bans Animated GIF Avatars

Twitter Bans Animated GIF Avatars

Amid all the profile design changes and new policies Twitter has implemented in the past six months, one of the few saving graces is that people could still use animated GIFs as avatars — until now.

As Buzzfeed FWD points out, Twitter said it would enforce the policy sooner or later. If you try to upload one, it will reject your image. If you currently have an animated GIF avatar, however, Twitter will let you keep it. But if you change it, you lose it forever. FOREVER. [Twitter via Buzzfeed]
