In this way, Twitter will no longer crop long images to fit the aesthetics of its interface but will provide useful previews without cropping the entire part of the photo. These previews will eliminate the need for users to open the photo and examine it again. 

Twitter confirmed that images with an aspect ratio of 2: 1 and 3: 4 will be displayed in their entirety. At the time of writing this article, Gadgets 360 noticed that the image is still cropped in the browser version of Twitter, so this change seems to be reflected only in current iOS and Android applications. Twitter is expected to expand this change to all platforms soon. 

With the second wave of COVID-19 flooding India’s medical infrastructure, Twitter has become a good resource for communities to come together and help each other when needed. To further assist users, Twitter has launched the COVID-19 SOS resource page in India, which provides real-time detailed information on needs such as beds, medications, and oxygen. 

Additionally, users will see a reminder on their timeline that will link to sources from various public health experts on COVID-19 vaccination safety, efficacy, and news.
