Twitter tries to fix problematic image crops by not cropping pictures


Twitter developed a potential answer to its problem of image cropping: no more extended crop management. On Wednesday, the company said that it is now going to test the promo picture of “what you see, is what you get” in the Twitter account box. 

This way, images will appear on Twitter just as people did so when the user composed the tweet.

“Android devices tests now: 

When posting on Twitter a picture, it’s like the picture in the Twitter post creator looks on the time frame larger and more excellent,” the corporation writes here on new version test through its tweet. 

Twitter further says that it is testing the new Android and apple 4K image send as part of the broader push to “enhance how Social media can express and perspective media.”

With the modification in the image forecast, there would be far fewer algebraic surprises, as some users noticed last autumn, showing how the automatic vehicle cropping tool of the business often favored white models over Black characters. 

AI Techniques In Twitter:

In so many cases, irregularly large imaging shared on Social media means cutting behind the scenes using an AI-enabled technique. Still, it so reared several troubling questions over how the software favored skin color or other factors.


Twitter then said this was racially tested, and for computer programs, it uses for machine vision cuts, and the company claimed that it found none. However, it also admitted that it needed more analysis and refined its method to avoid scenarios like this wherein the texture of partiality was possible.

“It’s obvious that we do have more analyses to do. We will open up our work so that others can revisit and reproduce,” 

Twitter communications led Liz Kelley following the viral dispute. 

“Because there’s no statistical bias in the system, it does not mean it is not harmful.” Kelley said Twitter’s trust is, “Without auto-cropping, the photo that you’ve seen in the Tweet musician is what the tweet is going to look like.”

Twitter’s Aditya Agrawal, chief technology officer for the company, later wrote a blog post on the issue, which at the time said that Twitter would conduct “additional analyses to add additional rigor to our tests” and “was committed to shared our findings and to… explore ways of opening up our analyses so others can help keep us accountable.”

Twitter Test Stage:

Now it seems that the solution proposed by Twitter is here, at least in a test stage. While tweets in standard aspect ratios will be equal when previewed and displayed in the composition window, design manager Dantley Davis of Twitter says extra-large or large images will be centered on the ones in the test. Twitter has not got to share a concrete schedule for all users to push this change live.

Thus, even if you’re a Facebook troll, you must know its strange crop algorithm. In the center, you upload a picture with your cat, but if it did appear on another picture feed, it focuses on quite another part of it rather than on someone’s pet, only if the picture is touched to access it in open sight. 

And of course, there are also allegations of the perceived racial bias of the algorithm. Well, thanks to the new test from Twitter, users can now see how a scene looked on the tweet while writing the tweet.

Android And iOS:

Twitter says that the new feature on Android and iOS is currently being tested. The point is that the Twitter account composer camera will show you essentially how much an image looks on the timeline of your or someone else. 

Typical Components Officer Dantley Davis also discussed that one image tweets would show the images, provided that they are a standard aspect ratio. Only images that have an abnormally large or large aspect ratio are centered.

With this test, we hope to find out if this new approach is better and how we need to change for Tweets with pictures to experience “what you see is what you get.”

This signifies that if you chose to start sharing a photograph image with a diagonal focus, it will appear in your Twitter feed. The same goes for landscape shots. In the old days, Youtube has been given some flaw in how its crop and highlight algorithm captures what parts of the image it needs to show and highlight when the Twitter message goes live, especially everyone with a huge profile and multiple objects.


The potential to post images of up to a resolution of 4K is another crucial element that the company tests. This means that your high-resolution uploads are no longer compressed automatically and are no longer displayed in all everyone’s glory.

 The new ‘high-quality image uploads’ option within Data Usage new smart things app must be activated manually to take account of this component. However, remember that the two features mentioned above are part of such a test, which means that only a tiny proportion of people will be initially available.

Another key feature that the company is testing is the ability to upload images of up to 4K resolution. What this means is your high-resolution uploads will no longer be automatically compressed and kept from being shown in all their glory. To take advantage of this feature, you will have to manually enable the new ‘high-quality image uploads’ option in the Data Usage section of the app. However, do keep in mind that the two aforementioned features are part of a test, which means they will be available to only a small number of users initially.
