    This update has been long requested by users. User complaints have been around timeline image cropping and the amount of compression that occurs when a photo is uploaded. To fix these issues Twitter is testing changes to the photo publishing process, including the option for 4k image uploads. To fix the cropping, Twitter is testing showing the original image in the feed with no cropping.

    Users have also complained about the compression to videos which are uploaded. To fix this, Twitter are testing a YouTube integration which would allow higher quality videos.

    If you’ve previously felt let down when sharing your content on twitter, these will be positive changes for you.
