Twitter announced some changes on Wednesday to how photos and videos will display in user timelines, emphasizing media in the stream as the company builds out its support for photos and video in status updates as a crucial part of its future.

In a blog post Wednesday, the company explained some of the changes coming to the site, including larger photos that appear on profiles and in search results, as well as media galleries that will incorporate videos from “Vine, YouTube, Vimeo, and other partners whose videos appear in expanded tweets.”

Twitter is clearly focusing on the role of visual media recently, having just launched Vine, the company’s standalone short video app, and having released a photo editing service in competition with Facebook’s Instagram last year.
