Twitter tweaks photos and video viewing

The micro-blogging site says users can now view enlarged photos right on the page, and also incorporates videos into photo galleries.


Twitter today showed a little more love to media sharing by rolling out some enhancements to photo and video viewing.

The micro-blogging service now lets users view enlarged photos directly on the page instead of going to another link. Twitter also added the videos you've shared -- made through Vine, YouTube, Vimeo and others -- to the gallery on your profile that used to display only your photos.

These are little tweaks to the site, but a part of Twitter's continuing efforts to put a bigger spotlight on sharing photos and video.
