Twitter came out with a new update last week, and it’s not big. It’s colossal. You may have seen it on your timeline. You may have used it yourself. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, it’s colossal.
The days of clicking pic.twitter.com to see pictures are over. Any picture posted on Twitter becomes part of the tweet. This will allow more people to see your pictures faster. Some people don’t have the patience to constantly click the pic.twitter.com link. However, this new update allows the patient and the impatient to see your pictures.
This update provides convenience because it removes a step for your followers. That means more retweets, more favorited tweets, and more followers.
This update is also colossal for the people who pay for promoted tweets. Tweets with pictures now take up more space on the timeline. A picture will allow an advertiser to get more space on someone’s timeline. This will result in more people looking at the tweet and a better ROI for the advertiser.
Pictures are now a lot easier to view. The next update may make it easier to view videos. Whether Twitter has more updates like this or not, Twitter is taking steps towards convenience which are going to help all of us big time.
