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.
New island emerges near Balochistan’s Kund Malir beach
A new island have popped up near Sonmiani beach of Balochistan— discovered by the fishermen sailing along the coast on Thursday.
The technical advisor on marine fisheries at World Wild Fund (WWF), Muhammad Moazzam Khan said that the new island appeared in west off the coast of Sonmiani near Kund Malir.
“Such phenomena occurs due to geographical changes within the ocean depths,” he said adding that these kind of small islands emerge, remain in place for a while and then diminish back into the waters.
It is pertinent mention here that such Islands had earlier emerged at the same location in 2000 and 2010.
The first known emergence, during November 1945, was concurrent with an earthquake of magnitude 8.0.
The 2nd and 3rd emergences were in March 1999 and November 2010 respectively.
In 2013, an island emerged off Gwadar coast after a powerful 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck Pakistan. However, the island disappeared after some time.
Landsat images of March 1999 and November 2010 emergences indicate appearance of round-shaped island of 4.4 and 5.2 hectare area, followed by erosion and disappearance. The island was composed of mud breccias and circular vents spewing mud slurry and methane gas.
