Twitter is a surprisingly good source for breaking and up to date news, so it’s only natural for the company to team up with key partners to offer “expanded Tweets.” Now, outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC’s Breaking News and TIME can deliver a deeper preview with an important headline, along with the introduction of an article within that tweet. Not only that, but embedded audio from Soundcloud links are now supported.
If you’ve ever expanded a post with an Instagram shot or video, this acts the same way. You or your favorite celebrity might not have more than 140 characters to say, but Twitter’s partners certainly do. Expanded Tweets will roll out to both the desktop and mobile site today, with support for iOS and Android apps coming soon, Twitter said.
