Twitter stated earlier this year that users would soon be allowed to submit full-size images. It enabled viewers to see the whole timeline rather than just a part of it. Prior to this functionality, users had to touch on the picture to view it in its entirety. Previously, this capability was only accessible for Android and iOS users, but the social media platform has now made it available for online users as well.
Previously, Twitter online displayed cropped photos that did not support the 16:9 aspect ratio. This was done to preserve the feed’s uniformity for easier use. Before uploading, users may now get a preview of their full-length photograph.

This is now available on web!
Pic looking good in the Tweet composer? That’s how it will look on the timeline.

For those who are unaware, the feature was tested in March, along with another feature that enables users to submit 4K photographs and movies. The latter was just recently implemented, and users may activate it by going to Settings.

Now testing on Android and iOS: when you Tweet a single image, how the image appears in the Tweet composer is how it will look on the timeline –– bigger and better. pic.twitter.com/izI5S9VRdX
