Twitter Will Now Show Full-Size Photos On Your Timeline


Twitter is changing photos on the social media platform.

Images posted to Twitter will no longer be cropped when you see them on your timeline.

Photos will now appear “as they were meant to be viewed”, as you can see below:

Rather than previewing a number of photos with the four small preview boxes, Twitter has introduced a more appealing new layout:

In a blog post, the company said:  “While Twitter began as an all-text platform, rich media has become essential to the experience. Some of the best moments on Twitter are when you see the world through someone else’s eyes.

“Astronaut Scott Kelly’s awe-inspiring #YearInSpace, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus onstage at the Emmys, Brian Dickinson’s solo summit of Mt. Everest – these photos bring us right into the moment.”

The change has already been applied to, with no word from the company when we’re likely to see it on mobile.
