The GIF search feature is powered by Twitter’s partners, GIPHY and Riffsy. GIFs can also be browsed in various categories giving you a wide range of options to choose from when composing a tweet or sending a direct message.
While the new GIF button may not be seen on your account now, it should be available in the next couple of weeks and this feature will also be available on the official twitter app for iOS and android as well as the desktop site.
