Twitter improves photos experience in embedded tweets

Twitter has rolled out a major update to its embedded Tweets with photos. Now, photos are displayed above the embed. Moreover, photos now appear larger when embedded.

Users can click the photo to check out the conversation behind the Tweet. There is also an option to interact with embedded Tweets.

“Click the reply icon to join the conversation, retweet to share, and favorite to show your appreciation. And as always, you can click the follow button to get the photographer’s Tweets in your home timeline,” Twitter explains in a blog post.

Twitter's improvement to its photo experience comes shortly after Facbeook introduced embedded posts for third party sites. Facebook's embedded posts display just like they do on Facebook, and come with support for pictures, videos, hashtags, and other content.

Instagram, now a unit of Facebook, recently launched videos and embedded posts. Twitter's Vine videos are also embeddable.

Here’s how it looks now:
