New Tumblr iPhone App Has GIFs, MTV Reaches 1 Million Instagram Followers
A great day for the internet.
The brand new Tumblr iPhone app has a flurry of new features which indicate that the future is imminent. There's bigger images, a new notification panel that shows you precisely who has reposted which of your forever-brilliant posts, and profile pages with user portraits and descriptions. But the most exciting part is what happens to GIFs — not only will they animate automatically in your feed, but you'll also be able to view the GIFs frame-by-frame by swiping the screen left to right. Cue the Tumblr generation never turning off their phones.
Meanwhile over in Instaland, MTV has hit the million-follower mark on Instagram — the first for a company. (Justin Bieber was the first individual to be followed by a million users, proving unequivocally that people love looking at other people's selfies, especially if they contain the face of Justin Bieber. See Fig. 1).
