Twitter streams flooded with media in wake of latest iOS, Android and web update

Perhaps you've seen a few more images and Vines populating your Twitter feed this afternoon? That's because the web version of Twitter reflects the service's latest update: image and Vine previews below related tweets. Both the iOS and Android versions of Twitter also get the update today. The update is certain to change the Twitter experience, as our feeds are already bursting with images and Vine previews (as adorably demonstrated above). On mobile, the update also makes replies, retweets and favorites available right from your timeline -- one more shortcut to retweeting those cat pictures.

Picture this: More visual Tweets

So many of the great moments you share on Twitter are made even better with photos or with videos from Vine. These rich Tweets can bring your followers closer to what's happening, and make them feel like they are right there with you.

We want to make it easier for everyone to experience those moments on Twitter. That's why starting today, timelines on Twitter will be more visual and more engaging: previews of Twitter photos and videos from Vine will be front and center in Tweets. To see more of the photo or play the video, just tap.

We've also made it easier for you to reply, retweet or favorite a Tweet without leaving your timeline; you can tap to do that right inside the Tweets you see in your timeline.

Here's how it works:

To get this update, download Twitter for Android or Twitter for iPhone. And we're making the new photo and video previews available on, too.
