American social media giant Twitter is now showing full-sized images on the web.

According to The Verge, this is the same update that banished Twitter's awkward auto-cropping algorithm on its Android and iOS apps, which means that users will see images in their entire timeline as they will scroll through Twitter on their web browser.
