Do you want to get noticed more on Twitter? I recently started using the Twitter GIFS image option after I noticed Ryan Biddulph onTwitter using them to thank me for sharing his tweets.

The images were awesome and really got my attention. Then Sam Hurley got my attention with his GIFS to me and I began to use the GIF feature. WOW!

People really respond to them and it shows you care. You have taken a little extra time to find something that they can relate to.
