After announcing 4K image uploads last month, Twitter is now Twitter has announced that it will now stop cropping tall images on your timeline.
The change is rolling out on iOS and Android in the next few weeks and means that your single images won’t be cropped anymore – they will look the same in the composer, as they do on your timeline.
The change will make many photographers, artists, and social media managers very happy as their tall images will appear on Twitter exactly the way they imagined.
It is unclear if videos will also remain uncropped with this update.
A new kind of surprise: show off more of your pic when you Tweet a single image.

Up until now, 16:9 and 4:3 aspect-ratio images appeared cropped in the Twitter timeline and would only appear fully when a user tapped on the cropped preview.
Twitter initially announced a test for this change last month – around the same time it announced the ability to upload and view 4K images on its platform.
Now testing on Android and iOS: when you Tweet a single image, how the image appears in the Tweet composer is how it will look on the timeline –– bigger and better. pic.twitter.com/izI5S9VRdX
