This comes after Twitter received flak for their flawed image cropping algorithm, and is biased in regards to what it does and doesn't crop from photos. As you know, Twitter currently doesn't allow users to crop an uploaded photo's in-stream preview.
Twitter said they're "working on ways" to give users more visibility and control over how an image would appear when a tweet is publish:
"We are prioritizing work to decrease our reliance on ML-based image cropping by giving people more visibility and control over what their images will look like in a Tweet. |
Going forward, we are committed to following the "what you see is what you get" principles of design, meaning quite simply: the photo you see in the Tweet composer is what it will look like in the Tweet."
