Twitter Testing Full-Sized Image Previews in Timeline on iOS and Android

Twitter today announced it is testing full-sized image previews in the timeline on iOS and Android, allowing users to see a full image in its original size, rather than merely a cropped 16:9 version.

twitter combined feature
On iOS and Android, Twitter currently displays a cropped version of any non-16:9 image on the timeline. The newly announced change, currently being tested, will instead show an image in its full size right inline on the Twitter timeline. With the change, you'll be able to see the full image without having to tap it directly, making the browsing experience easier.

Alongside the timeline change, Twitter also announced it is testing the ability for users to upload 4K images on iOS and Android. Users will see a new "High-quality image upload" option on the "Data usage" settings page. Twitter hasn't specified a timeframe for when these changes will roll out, but it is testing them with iOS and Android users and they should be available to everyone sometime later this year.

Yep violating the terms of service.. and dealing with consequences. Sounds like censorship to me.
I have a First Amendment attorney, nicest woman and she recently joined masses of others who were banned at ****ter.

People are being blanketed with false allegations of "platform manipulation blah blah using multiple accounts" when they have only one.

Hey, the Orwellian totalitarianism is a sign of the times.

Twitter is really the social network I dislike the most, the official app is so convoluted. I only have it because of my business but I admit I do not really know how to use it very well, sometimes I only want to read a news article or a tweet and it ends up sharing it.
