How can I access the twitter gif library via PHP (or at least force a giphy link to embed in a tweet with another link)?


Howdy howdy. I want to be able to post tweets that include both a link to my site, and an embedded gif. When creating a tweet manually its easy. I write up the tweet then hit the gif button, choose my gif and we are done. But I cant seem to figure out how to do this when I post from my PHP script. Is there an API for the gif library?

Alternatively I tried just adding a link from giphy to the body of the tweet, but since I already had a link to my site in the tweet the gif wasn’t expanded, instead the preview card for my website was displayed.



There is no API or programmatic access to the GIFs in the client app or website. You would have to build that integration with a GIF service yourself.
