Twitter blocks animated PNGs amid safety concerns for users with epilepsy

Twitter is banning animated PNGs from its platform after trolls hijacked the Epilepsy Foundation’s handle and hashtags last month and sent out animated images that could potentially cause seizures in photosensitive people. Additionally, the company also thinks that animated PNGs cause performance issues for the app.
