Micro-blogging site Twitter plans to update its social media dashboard app TweetDeck with support for GIFs, polls and emojis.

In a Twitter poll, users were asked to choose the missing features that people would most like to see incorporated into TweetDeck, The Verge reported on Friday.

The company plans on bringing the above mentioned new elements as well as support for threads and image tagging to TweetDeck.

“It’s not that TweetDeck is really suffering from not having these features. But it’s a gesture of goodwill from Twitter to bring these features to TweetDeck, if only to show that the app is still in its good graces,” the report said.

For now, the features are in the test phase and details about the public roll-out remain unknown.

TweetDeck was set up in 2008 by Iain Dodsworth and was later acquired by Twitter in 2011.
