Twitter is all about the product tweak announcements this week. Yesterday, they announced user-tailored trending topics, and today they rolled out a new feature that might make your feed just a little bit prettier. Now, when you expand links tweeted by certain organizations, the expanded tweet will also display photos and more information about those links.

Expanded tweets already work for most photos and videos, but now they’ll also be implemented for new partners like BuzzFeed, TMZ and The New York Times. You can also watch videos from these partners right in your feed.

Why they decided to illustrate this with a video of Chris Brown, however, is beyond us.
