Fast Company – What Twitter’s Expanded Images Mean For Clicks, Retweets, And Favorites

The changes to how Twitter displays images can make your tweets stand out. Here’s how to boost your engagement one image at a time.

I recently covered some big changes that Twitter has made, and here is another one. Twitter just added inline images to tweets so that you don’t need to click a link to see an attached image, but rather the Tweet itself expands. This only works with images uploaded directly to Twitter, which use a pic.twitter.com URL. If you Tweet a Vine video, you’ll also see this inline on Twitter.com or in the official Twitter apps for iPhone and Android.

On top of that, you can easily post any image you find on the web, straight as a fully expanded image to Twitter with Buffer’s browser extension.
