Today, Twitter has rolled out several new updates on its site, including improved photos and videos management on the service’s web interface. The new media update makes it easier for users to view media files either from profile pages or in search results.
When a user is viewing a photo on Twitter’s web interface, users were only restricted to view the smaller size of the image. If they wanted to see the larger version they would have to view the photo from the source by clicking on it. However, the new update provides the ability to view photos right on the Twitter web interface, without having to leave the site and view it on the source web page. Users can now simply click a photo on a profile page or in search result listings to see the larger version of the media file.
Along with this, Twitter has enhanced the video viewing feature. With the latest update, videos will begin showing up in users’ media galleries. Twitter’s new Vine, along with YouTube, Vimeo, and other partners whose videos already appear in the expanded Tweets feature, will be featured alongside photos.
Yet another notable feature is the ability to view more replies on a tweet’s page, along with replies to replies. Prior to this update, any single tweet page would only contain the first few replies. However, starting today, users can simply keep scrolling down to see all replies. This feature is expected to drive more discussion on the social network.
Here’s an example of updated tweet pages that allow you to see more replies and conversations:
