Photographs get new 'front and center' look on Twitter

Twitter is changing the way photos are embedded in tweets. Now, photos will have a much more prominent look and feel.

Twitter said Thursday that it will now put a greater emphasis on the presentation of photographs embedded in tweets.

In a blog post, Twitter said that it is now going to put photos "front and center" in embedded tweets, a move designed to give embedded images a more prominent look.

The point, Twitter wrote, is to give photos a "bigger and bold visual focus," something that's important to many publishers and journalists who regularly post photographs on the social-networking site.

The new feature is one more in a long line that the company has unveiled in recent months in an attempt to streamline the Twitter service, giving users a better experience and making Twitter a more palatable option for advertisers in advance of its planned IPO.
