Twitter has made it easier for you to take photos, then crop them by selecting an aspect such as square or wide, or even rotate it — all within its mobile app.

The new features have been made available today on Twitter for Android, and will be “coming soon” to Twitter for iPhone.


Twitter is also prompting you to interact with your friends through the uploading of photos. Now when you upload a photo with people in it, you will see a reminder to @ mention your friends.

With this new update, if you pull down on your home timeline to refresh it and there are no new Tweets to load, you may see recommended Tweets, trending topics and suggestions for new accounts to follow. In the U.S. only, you’ll see TV, sports and news events updates as well.
