As of today, you’ll be able to upload animated GIFs onto Twitter via the web or its Android and iOS apps.
Twitter made the announcement via its @Support account (click on the image to play the GIF). GIFs won’t automatically play on your timeline, instead, they will appear with a play icon such as the one on videos and you can only view them by tapping on the icon.

Go ahead and try it out for yourself by tapping the photo icon in the text box and selecting the GIF you want to upload.
