Twitter has been experimenting with so called ‘extended tweets’ for a couple of weeks now. They have officially announced “expanded tweets” yielding more pictures, videos and page previews than previously.
The micro-blogging service has signed deals with partners like The New York Times, MSNBC, Time Magazine, BuzzFeed, Dailymotion and TMZ, so if you click on tweets from one of the official accounts you’ll get a story, video clip or image right there on the Twitter site; there’s no need to go elsewhere. Expanded tweets from the likes YouTube and Instagram remain in place as seen previously.
What do you think of the new Twitter features? How much of your time using Twitter is through a dashboard such as HootSuite or TweetDeck? Let me know your thoughts below.
