Twitter updates the way users view photos and videos

Today, Twitter rolled out several enhancements that make it easier to view photos and videos on Twitter — in particular, on profiles and in search results.

  • Large photos, right on the page. Click a photo from a profile page or in search results to see a larger version of that photo without leaving the page.
  • Video. Media galleries now include videos from Vine, YouTube, Vimeo, and other partners whose videos appear in expanded Tweets.

What’s more, tweet pages now let you see more of the conversation related to a Tweet. Check out this Tweet from @jimmyfallon, asking users to tweet embarrasing stories, or this Tweet from @NickKristof, asking why there are so few female bosses. Scroll down to view more replies to the Tweet, and you can see replies to those replies too.
