The Twitter Website Goes Media Rich

Remember when twitter used to be about text and links…from pictures to videos they used to link you to content but not have those media be on the side themselves. Well times are a changing with the ability to have images and videos from youtube be directly embedded into the website itself through the dual panel layout. While many people use clients for twitter the majority still connect to twitter via the website. These enhancements will help to bring context to the tweets that people view but how will it be received and what does this mean for brands that use twitter. Only time will tell but as twitter inches closer to 160 million registered users the real question is if these changes will be embraced or not.
