Twitter's awesome new photo update will make you want to share more

If you've ever felt caged in by Twitter's auto-image cropping, today's a day for celebration. Your image-sharing wings shall be clipped no longer (okay, enough with the bird puns) as the social media giant has announced the removal of the automatic image cropping feature. Up until now, this feature has constrained your pictures to a rectangular shape that needed to be tapped to see in full.

Now, iOS and Android users alike (this isn't yet available on desktop) will be able to share and view images in their full aspect ratios when using the platform. The Twittersphere is full of users rejoicing the news, which was announced via the below tweet yesterday. You'll definitely need up your editing game with the best photo apps to get your snaps up to standard.
