Twitter overhauls user display making tweets more 'visual'

Johannesburg, Oct. 31 (ANI): Twitter has overhauled its user display to make the messaging service 'more visual'.

The move from the networking site comes as it ramps up competition against photo-sharing services like Instagram.

According to news24, Twitter's Michael Sippey in a blog post said that timelines on Twitter will be more visual and more engaging: previews of Twitter photos and videos from Vine will be front and centre in tweets.

Some Twitter users noticed the change, which makes pictures, graphics and videos more prominent.

The company said it was incorporating the changes in Twitter on the Internet and its Android and iPhone apps, the report said.

The shift comes as Twitter is preparing its stock market debut, possibly as early as next week.(ANI)
