Twitter has announced that it is working on a timeline with edge-to-edge video and photos in tweets.
The redesign, which is currently on iOS, is aimed to test a more immersive timeline in which photos, videos, and Tweets with text spanning the width of your screen leaving no margin.
According to Twitter, reducing the margins on Tweets will allow the user a better use of the space in a Tweet so the focus is on your message and what you have to say, while bringing the timeline to life with larger photos and videos.
This redesign is an addition of rapid changes Twitter has been making in the recent times which include; Twitter font changes, changing of contrast buttons, introduction of super follows, introduction and the doing away of fleets among others.
However, in a statement by the American microblogging and social networking service, their desire to make these changes and server the public conversation might not always work out.
“We’re evolving what Twitter is, and trying bigger, bolder things to serve the public conversation. A number of these updates, like Fleets, are speculative and won’t work out. We’ll be rigorous, evaluate what works, and know when to move on and focus elsewhere. If we’re not evolving our approach and winding down features every once in a while – we’re not taking big enough chances. We’ll continue to build new ways to participate in conversations, listening to feedback and changing direction when there may be a better way to serve people using Twitter.” the company said in a previous statement.
The test is currently rolling with a small group of iOS users and will expand to others soon.
