Twitter no longer crops the photos in your Timeline

Twitter dedicates a little more space to visual media.

Updated ·1 min read

A small change, but one that's welcome all the same. Starting today will no longer crop the photos in your timeline, saving you a click to see holiday snaps, selfies and anything else the people you follow have been posting. It also means that when you upload an image, especially anything in a square format, you don't have to worry about how it'll appear on the web. That's good news for shutterbugs and news organisations, although power users will probably be disappointed in the move, which ultimately sacrifices tweet volume for visual media.

Twitter says it's also been tinkering with photo collections, making "larger, more beautiful" formats that apparently "bring out more of each photo" on the site. The changes are already live, so we'll let you be the judge.
