Twitter has put photos front and center in its update to embedded tweets.
Tweets that contain photos now have a “bigger and bold visual focus on the media” when you embed them, a boon for bloggers and publishers.
The rich update to photos in embedded tweets applies to both landscape and portrait photos, as Twitter displayed with the following two examples in its blog post announcing the change:

Moreover, each photo is clickable so you can discover the conversation behind the tweet. Also, you’ll notice on the above two tweets the new “related headlines” feature we reported on in August.
