Twitter users will soon be able to upload high-resolution photos in their Tweets, allowing their followers to see the images in full when posted on the timeline. The company is also introducing 4K uploading on iOS and Android.
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

Support for uploading high-resolution photos means that tweets of single photos will now appear on the timeline as a single photo, rather than a cropped preview you have to select in order to view.
The new features are currently being tested with a select number of Twitter users. If you’re in the test, you can update your high-quality image preferences in “Data usage” settings to get started.
Twitter says the new image sharing features will begin rolling out to more users “over the next few weeks.”
