Twitter has invested in a lot of changes and new features recently, and there is more to come. Now the company is working on a new edge-to-edge layout to display photos and videos on the timeline just like other social networks like Instagram are doing. At the same time, the company is finally asking users what they think of an option to edit tweets.

The new layout was revealed by the researcher Jane manchun wong, which is well known for showing the upcoming features of Twitter and other apps. As Wong showed, the new layout is similar to apps like Instagram, where photos and videos fill the entire horizontal area of ​​the screen.

Earlier this year, Twitter released a new feature that allows users to download high-quality media with up to 4K resolution. The company has also made some adjustments so that images are now displayed in the timeline at their actual size, so it’s no surprise that Twitter wants to further improve the experience of viewing photos and videos in its app.

It’s unclear when this new layout will be available to users, but it’s interesting that even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to Wong’s tweet saying the edge-to-edge photos are “much better.” “.

Another new feature that may be coming to Twitter is the ability to edit tweets. This is a highly anticipated feature among users, but Twitter has never had any interest in implementing it – at least until now. Twitter Product Manager Kayvon Beykpour today shared a poll on his personal profile asking what users think about being able to edit previously posted tweets.

The functionality, however, could be limited to followers of Twitter Blue, which is a new subscription service that unlocks additional features on the social network. Beykpour also suggests that, if available, this option would only be available “a few minutes” after a tweet is posted.

As the company works on new features, Twitter also announced earlier this week that the “Fleets” feature will be discontinued for good. With Fleets, you can post photos, videos, and other content that is only available for 24 hours, just like Instagram Stories. This feature, however, doesn’t seem to have had much success with Twitter users.
