Twitter's expanded tweets with content previews looks like a great way to help retain visitors on Twitter.

Twitter's New Expanded Tweets Allow Content Previews, Images and Videos [blog.twitter.com]
you can discover more interactive experiences inside any Tweet on twitter.com and mobile.twitter.com. When you expand Tweets containing links to partner websites, you can now see content previews, view images, play videos and more.

You’ve probably expanded Tweets before to play videos from YouTube or see photos from Instagram. Now, a diverse and growing group of new partners like the The Wall Street Journal, Breaking News, and TIME also deliver rich content inside Tweets containing a link to those websites.

So the idea would be to join
a diverse and growing group of new partners

BUT Twitter is the one making the partners selection!

I guess they are trying to be selective and to keep the quality up. Nothing wrong with that.

They're just now getting around to doing what some Twitter add-ons have done for years.

Trying to either play catch-up or kill the aftermarket, maybe both.

I wish they'd just focus on fixing stuff that's broken and hard to use like the new messed up DMs, etc.
