Twitter has increased the ability to upload and view images up to 2K or 2048×2048 resolution to 4K (4096×4096) resolution via Android or iOS mobile apps.
How to Upload 2K or 4K Image in Twitter iOS or Android Apps
To activate this feature, go to
- Settings and privacy> Data usage> High-quality images uploads
- select whether you want to upload media, Mobile data & Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi only.
However, uploading an image to Twitter as before will result in compression, but it will not compress a 4K image to 2K as it did before, instead the 4K image will be compressed to some extent, maintaining the same 4K resolution quality and uploading and viewing Will happen.
Another weakness in Twitter was that the uploading image had to be done in landscape mode only, and according to reports, Twitter is now preparing to upload the image in portrait format as well.
Although there may be some limit to the height of a photo, it will no longer be necessary to upload it only in landscape mode, this will allow you to display all the contents of the image you are uploading in a timeline.
However, the current 720p limit of video uploading will not change, and it can be assumed that increasing the resolution of video uploads while managing data usage has become a real challenge.
