Twitter said today that embedded tweets will now feature full-width photos and videos.

In a blog post this afternoon, Twitter said that it has redesigned embedded tweets to support “the modern Web.”

“This latest design makes it easier to tell engaging stories by beautifully integrating tweets into your content,” Twitter wrote. “In the three years since we first introduced embedded tweets, Twitter has become much more than a medium for text, now encompassing photos, videos, and more. Our latest redesign supports full-width photo and video for even better visual integration with surrounding content.”

Twitter said it has also reduced the weight and rendering time of embedded tweets so that Web pages load faster.

In addition, the company said it is now dynamically choosing the best-possible photo and video quality on mobile devices, many of which “now support screens with high pixel densities, allowing for higher-quality photos and icons in the same embedded tweet display area.”
