10 brands hijacking your Twitter feed with creative preview images

Last month Twitter added an image preview feature that causes pictures and Vines to automatically appear in users' timelines.

Prior to the update users had to manually expand the media or click through to view the full tweet, but we're now shown a small preview window whether we like it or not..

As with all alterations to the Twitter interface, the update was met with outrage from users who always seem surprised when agile and innovative tech companies seek to evolve their product.

The new image previews can occasionally cause problems, like this morning when my colleague Ben Davis caught a glimpse of a very NSFW picture that someone I follow had tweeted, but in general I find they add some much needed variety to my Twitter timeline.
