Photos on Twitter are about to get a lot better. In an official blog post, the social network announced that it would no longer crop images, but would, instead, show uncropped images in both single and multi-photo tweets.

"Starting today, we're making your twitter.com timeline more immersive by uncropping photos, so you can experience and present them as they were meant to be viewed," says the post.

If you tweet multiple photos, you will now see a lead image on the left.

Twitter has also revamped how multi-photo displays look in users' Twitter feeds. If you tweet multiple photos, you will now see a lead image, with your other photos displaying in consistent sizes on the right
