Twitter releases the full-sized images functionality for its web version

To recall, up until now, Twitter web showed cropped images that didn’t support 16:9 aspect ratio. This was done to maintain the consistency of the feed for streamlined usage. Users can now even see the preview of their full-length image before uploading.

Earlier this year, Twitter had announced that its users will soon be able to post full-size images. It allowed viewers to see the full-length images on the timeline instead of just a part of it. Prior to this feature, users actually had to tap on the image to see the entire image. Until now, this functionality was just available for Android and iOS users, but the social media platform has now released it for the web as well.
