Upload size limits for GIFs on social media

In order to share your GIFs on the internet via sites like Twitter and Facebook, you will need to keep the size of file low. So keep your GIF clips short as video uploads usually increase the size of a GIF file.

Here are the current size limits of various sites. Last updated August 3rd 2018.
