there is a passage on the Twitter documentation that confuse me about the maximum size allowed for GIFs.
The documentation says that in general the size limit is 5Mb but in some conditions it’s less. For example, when the image is attached to a tweet the size limit is 3Mb.
So, first of all, I don’t know how an image can be used without attaching it to a tweet, then my confusion.
Making things practical, I’m doing this:
- using /media/upload endpoint to upload a GIFs
- using /status/update and passing the id of the GIFs to the media id parameter of this endpoint
In this case, what it’s the GIFs maximum size ?
