Rejoice, GIF-makers and lovers! Ello has arrived to let you gracefully view and publish large, scrollable GIFs uncluttered by extra doodads and ads.
GIFs have been posted, and posted, and posted this week. We’ve been wondering, though, what characteristics best describe GIFs typically posted on Ello? We know this is a question with no answer, so we made our own rules and focused on GIFs that best literalize Ello’s sleek design, tacit NSFW posting, and networked culture.
So, based on this criteria, what GIF is the Ello-ist? “Woven Network,” posted by Faith Holland and pictured above. Nothing says scary, sexy and networked culture like a wicket of wires getting covered in goo. You can find her on Ello as @sugarhigh.
In a very, very close second we have a gigantic noodle-n00d by Rollin Leonard. Why? Because it’s craze-balls long, slick as fuck, and impossible to share on Facebook. Praise be to WordPress for letting us upload Leonard’s noodle without crashing our site!
