Twitter is working on some new features and plans to release them in the next few weeks. The company said in a post that the new features will improve the way users share and view media on the platform as it can be better streamed with images or videos. Twitter has revealed that users will soon be able to upload and view 4K images.
The ability to upload and view high-resolution photos will be available for Android and iOS users. If the option is visible to you, you can test it right away. Users only need to update the ‘High Quality Images’ preferences, found in the settings section. Just visit ‘Settings & Privacy’> ‘Data Usage’.
The setting for uploading high-quality images via Wi-Fi or mobile data is set to “Never” by default. You need to change that manually if you want to upload high resolution images to Twitter. The next update will also change the way you look at images.
Twitter He says “When you gweet a single image, the way the image appears in the tweet composer is how it will look on the timeline: bigger and better.” Then the company cleared up that tweets that have only one image with a standard aspect ratio will appear the way they were originally uploaded to Twitter and will not be cropped by the site.
“But we are investigating how to format other image sizes on the timeline,” Twitter said. Aside from these features, the microblogging site is also working on a feature that would allow users to rethink posting a tweet even after hitting the submit button. The company is expected to introduce an undo button soon, which will allow you to retract or correct a tweet before posting it on the platform.
The feature was recently discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, known for discovering new social media features ahead of its official launch. Wong posted a GIF on Twitter that suggested that Twitter would display a blue “undo” bar once he hit the “Tweet” button. The option will appear below the words “Your Tweet was sent.” You will be given a few seconds to decide, according to the post. Twitter could change the time frame of the feature before formally implementing it.
