Twitter Tests New Ways to Improve Content Sharing
Enjoy linking or watching YouTube videos on Twitter, but find it frustrating when you get redirected the YouTube site? Fret no longer, as Twitter has plans to let you view YouTube videos straight from a Tweet.
Recently, Twitter announced its testing of “ways to improve how you can share and view media on Twitter.”
First, the microblogging and social networking site broadcasted the potential for images to appear in the Tweet composer in full size – no more awkwardly cropped previews showing just your feet.[Image Creds: Twitter]
Twitter then shared that it is working to enable higher resolution photo uploads. This advancement will be particularly exciting for brands or content creators looking to show their products and visuals in the highest quality.
Twitter’s most recent plan is to allow users to watch YouTube videos on their Twitter feed, minus any website redirection or the opening of pesky new tabs.

The test will be available to “a very small group of users” in Canada, the US, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, Twitter revealed in a statement shared with The Verge. “The current test on iOS will be a four-week experiment,” a Twitter spokesperson said. “We plan to take a look at the results and will scale accordingly.”
Get ready, as improved content sharing on Twitter is coming your way.
