Twitter has been testing a new way to show images in user’s timelines. This means that, instead of seeing a cropped image in a tweet, you instead will see full images in the tweet.
As explained by Twitter:
“Now testing on Android and iOS: when you Tweet a single image, how the image appears in the Tweet composer is how it will look on the timeline – bigger and better.”
Also, the ‘open for a surprise’ Twitter image approach would also be removed, since many users are utilizing the cropped image process.
The test is running on both iOS and Android with a group of users on each platform.
Twitter is also testing different ways of allowing users to upload and view 4K images on the platform on both iOS and Android. The people testing the 4K image upload feature can update their high-quality image preference in their Data Usage settings in the app.
