Twitter has increased its animated GIF (graphics interchange format) size limit from 5MB to 15MB if uploaded on the web from a desktop, a media report said on Tuesday.

However, the 5MB photo limit stays the same, along with the GIF limit, for mobile uploads on Twitter.

But the micro-blogging website now allows for GIFs three times the size if they are uploaded on the web from a desktop computer.

The update has not made its way to TweetDeck which remains perennially behind the times when it comes to Twitter engineering improvements, The Verge reported.
