Twitter will now be allowing users to crop their own photos now, the way it has been previously is that they would crop the photos for their users and this isn’t making users very happy. The way photos are cropped would leave out important details in the post because it is based on algorithms. The algorithms are what make the cropping take place either on the top or bottom or even the middle. Now, they are going to allow people to choose how they want their posts to appear.
- Twitter will soon allow users to crop their own image previews after complaints about automatic cropping.
- There have been accusations that the algorithm favors white faces over black faces.
- Tweets demonstrating the bias went viral recently, forcing the company to respond.
“Cropping is done algorithmically, so that means Twitter may decide to crop near the top, bottom, or middle of an image.”
