    Twitter user Phil Pearlman told the technology media company that when he clicked the button, he was shown a selection of ready-made GIFs, including some categorised by mood and others that were trending.

    The reaction to the experiment has been pretty positive, according to TechCrunch. In the past, Facebook and Yahoo have partnered with third-parties like Giphy and Tumblr to integrate catalogues of GIFs on their messaging apps.
