Every day, publishers and journalists all over the world share the best of Twitter with their readers by embedding Tweets in their articles.
Perhaps not surprisingly, many of the most compelling Tweets include photos:
Good morning! Perspective - Sunday is a fine day to go for a walk with a friend. pic.twitter.com/P3uDfjYsEU— Chris Hadfield ( @Cmdr_Hadfield) August 11, 2013
Today we’re releasing what we think is a big improvement to all embedded Tweets with photos. As you can see from @Cmdr_Hadfield’s Tweet embedded above, we’ve put the photo front and center, with a bigger and bold visual focus on the media. Both landscape and portrait photos now have more room to show their pixels when the Tweets are embedded online:

You can click on the photo to see more about what’s happening and discover the conversation and behind the Tweet. If you’re new to seeing Tweets embedded on your favorite websites, keep in mind that you can interact with them just as you can in any Twitter app: Click the reply icon to join the conversation, retweet to share, and favorite to show your appreciation. And as always, you can click the follow button to get the photographer’s Tweets in your home timeline.
So get out, capture what’s happening with a photo, and share it on Twitter.
