Disable Image Previews on Twitter


Earlier this week the popular social networking site, Twitter released an update to all of the web services platform’s. The update has already been implemented in the desktop site, and is available to iOS and Android mobile users who choose to update their app.

Twitter –> Me –> Settings –toggle off–> Image Previews
