As explained by Twitter designer @shuangsta last month, Twitter wanted to give people the ability to easily “share media-based ephemeral commentary and responses to Tweets.”
“Capturing directly on Twitter enables off-the-cuff responses and commentary, while adding from the media gallery supports fun use cases like memes, for the Extremely Online™ (…all of us at the moment),” she says.
We have no indication of when it might roll out on Android.
