Twitter Lets You View Larger Photos Inside Profile Pages, Adds Videos to Media GalleriesBy: Josh Wolford - January 30, 2013
Twitter has begun to roll out some nice changes to profile pages that have to deal with the media they contain.
First off, Twitter is no longer making you leave the page to view photos when you click them from inside a profile page. Now, these photos should pop up in a lightbox. Another bonus to the new and improved photo-viewing experience is that the photos will also be bigger.
You’ll also see more video content inside the media galleries on the left-hand side of users’ profiles.
“Media galleries now include videos from Vine, YouTube, Vimeo, and other partners whose videos appear in expanded Tweets,” says Twitter.
Twitter also announced another cool update today. They’ve expanded individual tweet pages to allow users to scroll through all the replies – not just a handful. This is a long time coming and allows users to better explore the conversation stemming from popular tweets from popular users.
