New look for Twitter photos

 Twitter photos

Twitter changed the way images display on this week, with photos appearing uncropped and therefore taking up more space in the timeline. Previously, images would be cropped to a landscape format, and multiple images would be arranged into a symmetrical grid. Now, there will be either be a single uncropped image (accompanied by smaller thumbnails in the case of multiple uploads). As a result of the change, click-to-reveal quizzes like the one below will no longer display properly on desktop. Find out more about the changes on Twitter's blog.
