Get ready for a significant improvement in the quality of the images you see on your tweet timelines.
Well, some of them anyway – after Twitter first launched a small test of the option last month, Twitter announced that all users will now have the option to upload and view 4K images on their Tweets.
Here is an example of a 4K image in a tweet:
Note: You will need to enable 4K images either in the Twitter app or in the image settings on your device for them to take full effect.
You can zoom in on the detail, the flowers next to the concrete, the person sitting on the balcony in this building.
According to Twitter:
Time to tweet those high resolution pictures – The option to upload and view 4K pictures on Android and iOS is now available to everyone. To start uploading and viewing pictures in 4K, update your high quality picture settings in Settings for “data usage”. “”
The addition could have a significant impact on photographers and artists in particular, as higher quality representations of their work can now be uploaded.
This may also apply to brands who have more opportunities to convey a more professional image of their work and products through their tweeted graphics.
As mentioned earlier, Twitter first announced last month that it was testing support for 4K images as part of a larger experiment to display images in tweet timelines (on iOS). This test also shows full images in tweets, unlike cropped versions, which could further improve the presentation options for tweets.
It can also skew the way your tweet timeline is presented, but it seems like an improvement if Twitter chooses to roll out the option entirely.
Now you have more thoughts on the visual presentation on Twitter which, along with new background visualizations for fleets, could improve your strategic approach significantly.
