In what may be its most consequential move ever, Twitter today announced GIF support on and Android/iOS apps (through a GIFful tweet, naturally!).

GIFs (pronounced like Jif, the peanut butter brand) are short animated graphics that can really punch-up sharable content. If a picture’s worth 1000 words, a GIF must be worth much more than 140 characters. WordPress, Tumblr, Instagram, LiveJournal and now Twitter all support GIFs, and the list is by no means complete.
