GIFs have been the standard animated image format since 1987 and it’s time for a change. It’s 2015, and although we’re now able to post GIFs on most social networks, they are the same old GIFs. Twitter is leading a change though, with “Scratchreels” – GIFs that you you can “scratch” back and forth with your finger or your mouse.
