In an effort to expand its multimedia capabilities, Twitter is testing an automatic, in-stream image preview. Currently Twitter.com supports two-step in-stream previews, which means that some photos can be displayed in a user’s timeline after the user clicks anywhere inside the tweet. Some users have even reported noticing in-stream previews without the need to click. What this means for sponsored images or posts remains to be seen, but keep an eye out for this important new feature that looks to be rolling out soon.
