Twitter has finally included support for Live Photos in iOS. The feature basically converts your live photos to Gif to be shared on the platform. If you now add a Live Photo to a tweet using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you will see an option to use the actual Live Photo instead of uploading a still image.
The feature is pretty easy to use, at least from the Twitter iOS app. When drafting a tweet, select a photo from your camera roll, then tap the “GIF” button in the lower-left corner of the photo in your tweet compose window. Then, when you post the tweet, that photo will be a GIF
