Twitter is Testing Changes on a Expandable Timeline

Twitter is testing changes on a timeline, expandable that lets users see the media and related information within the same timeline, instead of the side as it is today. Not all members can see the new stream, but Twitter itself has confirmed that this is a test phase confined to a small number of users.


Based on what has been shown, the tweets will expand with a click instead of being shown on the right side of the page. By clicking on a message shared, you can see how many people have retweet, conversations born under that particular update and any related photos and videos. The media will be shown among others in a broader view of the timeline, making it easier and faster viewing a photo or video . The star, the icon for the retweet and the button to answer a user is moved to the top right and will therefore be more visible.
Expands Twitter Timeline

Although not distorting anything in the interface, changes to the timeline of Twitter canfurther simplify the service : it is intelligent changes, through which the company hopes to make it even easier to use for those who use the platform. It is not known when it will end the testing of novelty in question and when Twitter will extend the use to all customers.
