Yesterday, Twitter made top headlines by adding support for animated GIFs. Yes, Twitter is now complete. You can post pictures of your favorite animated GIF with your friends.

Want to know how Google's Matt Cutts felt about this? Well, here is an animated GIF that sums it up:

Okay, just kidding, that is how Matt Cutts felt about a novice SEO question.

Anyway, truth is, this makes me happy. As you all know, I am a big fan of animated GIFs.

I still can not believe FB has not allowed this. It brings trolling those "We need 1M likes" to a whole new, entertaining, level.

This *seems* exciting but they don't really post as GIFs, they get converted to a video and you have to click play. Part of the whole charm of GIFs the almost obnoxious auto-play / infinite loop.
