Twitter is testing a new edge-to-edge timeline layout for photos, asking users about the ability to edit tweets

Twitter is testing a new timeline layout in which photos are stretched to the edge of the screen with no horizontal borders, mimicking the design layout of popular photo and video sharing apps, such as Instagram.

The new layout was shared by Jane Manchun Wong on Twitter, who often finds out about features and changes Twitter is working on behind the scenes. The change is still being tested, but according to a screenshot shared by Wong, photos will now go edge-to-edge, compared to the current layout which has horizontal margins on either side of photos.

Separately, as Twitter announced this week that it would be shutting down its story-like feature “Fleets” in August, the company may be eyeing a possible new feature most sought after by users.

In a tweet (via 9to5Mac), the company’s product manager, Kayvon Beykpour, asked his followers if they would subscribe to “Twitter Blue”, the platform’s monthly subscription service, if it offered users the option to edit tweets for a few minutes after they are posted.

While there’s no way to tell if the ability to edit tweets will ever become a reality, the company’s product manager survey certainly indicates that Twitter is exploring the idea again and trying to gather public opinion.
