Upload size limits for GIFs on social media

We all love sharing GIFs and in order to share your animated  GIFs on the internet via social media platforms 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 for uploading a GIF (graphic interchange format) to various social media networks. Last updated June 22nd 2020.
