Twitter's expanded tweets feature will now support more content from more places.
As Twitter users know, when you click on some tweets that include pictures or YouTube videos, the tweet expands to let you see more. Now that same type of expansion will also show the top parts of articles from various publications, videos from other websites and images from more sources, Twitter announced Wednesday.
"When you expand a tweet linking to a news article by the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle or Der Spiegel Online, you can see a preview with the headline, the introduction and sometimes the Twitter accounts of the publisher and writer," Michael Sippey, Twitter's product team director, said on the company's blog.
The Wall Street Journal,MSNBC's Breaking News and Time were also mentioned in the blog post.

Content from news sources will expand to show the article's headline and introduction and the Twitter handles of its publisher and author.
