Twitter is beginning to let users tweet and view pictures in 4K on iOS and Android. The company had begun testing the feature earlier in the year and now it’s rolling it out to all its users.
“Now testing on Android and iOS: when you Tweet a single image, how the image appears in the Tweet composer is how it will look on the timeline –– bigger and better,” Twitter announced at the time.
Before now, Twitter’s web app was already supporting higher-resolution images at up to 4096 x 4096 resolution, however, the mobile apps could only support just half that, with a maximum resolution of 2048 x 2048.

Time to Tweet those high res pics –– the option to upload and view 4K images on Android and iOS is now available for everyone.
To start uploading and viewing images in 4K, update your high-quality image preferences in “Data usage” settings. https://t.co/XDnWOji3nx

To be able to use the new feature, Twitter users will have to edit the “data usage” section of the settings menu in their Twitter app and enable both “high-quality images”, for viewing 4K images, and “high-quality image uploads”, for tweeting them.
Users can also choose if they want the higher-resolution images to be enabled for both cellular and Wi-Fi, just Wi-Fi, or disabled entirely. This option is very similar options to how Twitter handles higher resolution or auto-playing video.
