The different social network applications have a design in which they delimit the space between one and the other very well. It is logical, since otherwise you would think that all the content you see is from a single person, but you have to give credit to whoever has shared that content and, of course, who has created it. But from time to time, versions change at the design level and you may notice those changes when they are already in place. It is normal, and it is that the same thing is happening with el Twitter full screen layout on Android.
Android in full screen
One of the maxims that all mobile manufacturers pursue is the maximum use of the terminal space. They know that they have a chassis in which everything must fall: battery, processor, motherboard, screen … and there should not be a gap without covering. However, the display has been a growing concern, to the point of removing buttons to minimize bezels.
But this is what happens when modifying the hardware, while the field of software only remains to do two things: maintain the design if it works or change it and adapt to new conditions. The first is pure logic, since if something works for you, why change it? But if you consider that you need a fresh touch to the application, this may be an important point to follow. This is what they must have thought of Twitter when starting with the change of full screen on smartphones.
This is now testing on Android!
Some of you will see edge to edge Tweets on the timeline that give more room for your photos, GIFs, and videos.

It turns out that the bird’s app is working to put all the content of its tweets on full screen. And it is that the viewing will be totally different. On the one hand, the tweets will maintain a line that divides them, but the written content as well as the multimedia will occupy the full width of the application. Of course, it will keep the mosaic style for those moments when you upload more than one photo.
The truth is that this new feature work began on iOS in early September, but now finally comes to Android. The development process has begun and it will be a matter of time before we see this new feature in the version of all smartphones.
The estimated arrival date is still a mystery, so most likely it will arrive with a routine update. Then they will only have to listen to the verdict of the users, who will give their point of view as the days go by on whether it has been a success or an error.
