Twitter Announces Expanded Tweets – Embedded Headlines, Pics and Video
The reason why Twitter has become such a great place for breaking news is its 140 character limit – but now Twitter is partnering with big media companies to expand what can be shared in a single Tweet.
Twitter announced today that it has introduced expanded Tweets.
Part of the speediness of Twitter must be due to the 140 character limit, but in recent months Twitter has been expanding what users can do within a Tweet, allowing them to embed YouTube videos and Instagram photos that can be viewed within Twitter or one of its clients.
The expanded Tweets will be rolling out on Twitter’s website and mobile site today, and coming soon for iOS and Android.
