Twitter launched full support for 4K images in tweets

Prepare to significantly improve the quality of the images you see on your timelines.

Well, some of them, anyway – after they first launched a small test of options last month, Twitter has announced that all users can now upload and view 4K images within their tweets.

Here is an example of a 4K image in a tweet:

Note: You must enable 4K images, either in the Twitter application or in the image settings on the device, to see them in full effect.

You can zoom in on the details, the flowers next to the concrete, the person sitting on the balcony in that building.

As per Twitter:

“It’s time to Tweet these high-resolution images – the option to upload and view 4K images on Android and iOS is now available to everyone. To start uploading and viewing images in 4K, update your high-quality image settings in the” Data Usage “settings.”

The supplement could have significant implications, especially for photographers and artists, with the capacity to now transmit better quality depictions of their works.

And the same can apply to brands, with more ways to communicate a more professional image of your work and products through your tweeted visual images.

As noted, Twitter first announced it was testing support for 4K images last month, as part of a larger experiment related to how images are displayed in tweet timelines (on iOS). This test also displays full images displayed within tweets, as opposed to cropped versions, which could further improve tweet presentation capabilities.

It can also distort the way your tweets timeline is presented, but it looks like an improvement if Twitter decides to switch to a full-featured option.

So now you have more considerations of visual presentation on Twitter, which, along with the new one background visuals for Fleets, could add a lot to your strategic approach.
