Twitter rolled out improvements to the way images are viewed and posted on Wednesday. Many joyful users have quickly overflowed the platform with Vertical Photo that might have shown up in timelines with an odd or unfortunate crop.
Many users tweeted a photo uploaded with their iOS or Android device, it will appear in the timeline in its entirety. Currently, users can preview what an image will look like in the tweet composer pre-post rather than having to pray to the cropping algorithm not to cut off Mr Meow Meow’s head.
Twitter also tweeted that No bird too tall, no crop too short. They stated that Introducing bigger and better images on iOS and Android, now available to everyone. They made the first announcement in March that it was testing new features to improve how photos appear on the platform. The site also recently updated to 4K images. A glance through the trending Twitter crop is a topic that indicated wide support for the latest shift, especially among creatives.
A spokesperson added that the launch is a direct result of the feedback people shared with us last year that the way our algorithm cropped images wasn’t equitable. It is referring to charges of racial bias in its photo preview generator. They added that very wide or tall images will still be centre-cropped by default, but this is something the company working to improve.
