Twitter is now displaying images that users link to in their tweets right in the users’ feeds. Previously, users could click on an image link associated with a tweet that would bring up an image “card” within the feed; now the image shows up directly in the feed from the get go. It’s the biggest change to the platform since 2011, the New York Times noted.
“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,” Michael Sippey, Twitter’s vice president for product, wrote in a blog post. “To see more of the photo or play the video, just tap.” Twitter is expected to go public next week.
