Twitter App for iOS Now Supports Larger Image Previews in Timeline

Twitter today announced that the Twitter for iOS app supports larger image previews in the timeline, which means tall images will no longer be cropped to a significant degree in the Twitter app.

twitter combined feature
Twitter has been testing larger-sized image previews on iOS and Android since March, but now the expanded image previews are rolling out for everyone.


Rather than displaying a cropped 16x9 version of a Twitter image in the timeline, Twitter will now show images with 2:1 and 3:4 aspect ratios in full as well. Larger-sized images are available on iOS and Android, but image previews on the web are still cropped.

Last month, Twitter also began supporting the viewing and uploading of 4K images on the Twitter for iOS app, allowing for higher-resolution images in the timeline.

Twitter is an invasive company that tracks users, hence why I deleted my account.

MR, I wish you would disable the Twitter tracker on your website. Fortunately, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials blocks it for me.

I’ve been on Twitter for over 10 years and I remember when this was a feature that they removed so it’s funny to me that they are touting this as something groundbreaking.

I will repeat myself. Any new features are worthless when it become outlet for propaganda or "harmless" thing but suppress free speech..... and truth.
