Twitter tests edge-to-edge photos in timeline
The microblogging platform, Twitter is exploring ways to build more visually immersive experience with its latest test to see how images appear on the platform.
The upcoming feature will expand visual media embedded in tweets to fill the whole width of a mobile phone's screen. The new layout is being tested on iOS but not on Android.
“The change is designed to make it easier for visual content to shine,” said twitter.
In the current test, tweets fill the full frame from left to right instead of being offset by a pretty large margin on the left.
The changes result in much larger images and videos that look better in the feed and a cleaner, more modern design that doesn’t unnecessarily squish tweets to the right of users’ profile pictures.
Now testing on iOS:— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) September 7, 2021

The test follows two previous image-focused changes— 4K image support and full-size images.
The 4K image support came in April and increased the resolution of images from 2048 x 2048 pixels to 3840 pixels on the long end.
While, full-size image support came in May and brought an end to cropped photos on timelines in iOS and Android.
The company, with the announcement that it is testing edge-to-edge photo support is increasing its chances of becoming an Instagram competitor.
The date for the rollout is not ascertain yet. However, users are already complaining about the change, despite the fact that it is still in its early stages.
This is because, there's no word, on when full-width tweets will arrive on some of the best Android phones.
