Twitter recently made two updates to its user interface: the first allows users to end up viewing photos in their original aspect ratio instead of cropping them. The second is a completely different type, which implements the attachment of messages to potentially dangerous messages. Or offensive tweets. From the beginning, for many Twitter users, cropped photos have almost always been a source of anger.
Although you can easily view small and large photos on a desktop computer, other platforms (such as mobile devices) are not suitable. This can be an annoying experience when you have to stop scrolling to click on photos that may or may not be related. For users, the most annoying thing may be that all sizes of images must be cropped to 16:9. This means that images that are traditionally small but too wide or too tall still have axes.
Another rather worrying issue with the cropping algorithm submitted by users is the tendency to racism, which is not a very cautious statement. Ironically, Twitter accidentally released a discriminatory AI, which is clearly underestimated.AI’s job is to crop the photo so that the face can still be seen when scrolling down. However, many users decided to try it and found that black people had been actively deprived of this privilege. Or the adjacent white face is preferred. Okay, wow! Well, this anger will pass soon.
With the latest update from Twitter, you can now upload images of any size across all platform iterations. Tablet and mobile device users can now easily access photos without worrying about content loss or racial prejudice! Seriously, even after reading the last point, I am completely confused. Ironically, in the second update aimed at reducing user racial discrimination, Twitter will release a series of daunting news. Whenever platform users try to post a tweet in potentially malicious or derogatory language, the message will flash. The post on freedom of expression does not ban the tweet but requires users to modify their wording and motivation before posting.
