This was announced by Twitter on its official blog and according to them Starting today, you can also expand Tweets on Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android.
When you tap a Tweet linking to a Kickstarter project, for example, you can play its video directly from the Tweet details view in your app.
You can also read article summaries when you tap Tweets linking to sources like The Atlantic or play videos or view images when you expand Tweets linking to websites like Etsy and Vimeo. This new experience will roll out gradually to web, iPhone and Android users.
Now, Twitter for iPhone complements any live event, whether you’re watching from home or from the stands. (And remember to search #NASCAR within your app this coming Sunday, July 15, during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 to watch the race unfold from the perspectives of drivers, celebrities, commentators and fans.)
In addition, you can download the new version of Twitter’s app here for iPhone and Android.
