Twitter is changing how it shows images on the timeline and ruining one of the most viral meme styles on the micro-blogging platform. Twitter announced single image tweets will no longer be cropped on Android and iOS.
“Open for a surprise” is a popular meme on Twitter. Because Twitter crop image previews on the timeline, users had to click on an image tweet to reveal the part of the image that is hidden. Twitter says images will now exactly how it looks in the Tweet composer and on the timeline.
Twitter began testing the feature back in March and it is now rolling it out to all users on Android and iOS. Twitter also recently made it possible to tweet high-resolution images without quality loss, users can now upload 4K images on Android and iOS.
