Twitter Supports 4k pictures to Tweets 

Higher-resolution images are already supported in Twitter’s web app (at up to 4096 x 4096 resolution), but they had been limited to the mobile apps, (2048 x 2048). 

Earlier in March, the company started testing the 4K image upload option for mobile users. 

Now it is now rolling out the feature to all users of its Android and iOS apps. 

To enable the new feature, you will have to go to “Settings” in the Twitter app, choose the “data usage”. Enable “high-quality images” to see 4K photos and “high-quality image uploads” to tweet them. 

You can select whether the higher-resolution images will be enabled for both cellular and Wi-Fi, just Wi-Fi, or disabled entirely.

Twitter now Allows Users to Tweet 4K Photos on Android and iOS

You can tweet 4K, but can’t see 4K on mobile

Though Twitter mobile app now allows users to view 4K photos on their phones, not every smartphone actually have displays with 4k resolutions. That means if your device doesn’t have resolutions reaching 4k, you probably won’t be able to see the photos at that sharpness while experiencing on Twitter.

Most phones today have Full HD displays (1920 x 1080, a quarter of the resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160). Only a few phones have 4K displays, including the Sony Xperia 1 II. So is Twitter’s new mobile app feature useless? Many people wonder.

The answer is No. Users can still be able to upload 4K photos using a computer or laptop. However, to view those photos in full resolution, they will need to have  4K-and-fancier displays.
