The popularity of visual media has led the traditionally text-based Twitter to update the display of its photos. Now, users will have a more media-minded experience with uncropped photos and improved multi-photo displays. This update is part of Twitter’s transition from a text-centric social media platform into a more visual vehicle that fully supports a rich media experience. TechCrunch.com shared a closer look at Twitter’s new focus on photos.
This update follows Twitter’s other media-centric efforts, including launching a visual media-based feature called Moments, along with auto-playing videos.
Twitter has been making this transition to ease and enhance the user’s visual-viewing experience. Previously, users had to crop their photos for ideal viewing, which often affected the photo’s intended format and impact.
But with this new update, Twitter users will be able to easily post photos in their original size. And when tweeting multiple photos at once, the images will appear larger and let users highlight the lead photo in a larger size. Twitter is currently rolling out the update.
This recent update will provide a much better media-viewing experience that the social media network hopes will lead users to shift their perception of Twitter from a text-centric channel into a photo-focused platform.
