Popular microblogging platform, Twitter has disclosed its plan to make the photo experience on twitter.com richer by uncropping photos and “introducing larger and more beautiful multi-photo displays”.
This was disclosed in a blog post released on Monday.
In the post, Twitter said it was paying more attention to enriching the media experience on the site because pictures bring the users “right into the moment”.
The blog post read: “Today, we’re introducing a richer photo experience on twitter.com.
“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.
“This is why we’re constantly refining Twitter’s media experience — for example, we launched autoplaying video earlier this year, and designed Moments around visual media.
“Starting today, we’re making your twitter.com timeline more immersive by uncropping photos, so you can experience and present them as they were meant to be viewed.
“We’re also introducing larger, more beautiful multi-photo displays, which bring out more of each photo.”
