Big news on social this week, as Twitter has F I N A L L Y fixed it’s cropped photo issue!
When posting images, Twitter users have previously been forced to post in landscape, or watch as their portrait image is cropped to within an inch of its life…

As some of you may know, European football has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in recent weeks. The announcement of a ‘European Super League’, which would essentially rake in billions for club owners and provide absolutely nothing for the fans or players, caused quite a stir. It wasn’t long before the outcry from fans, players and the media led all six English clubs involved in the league to step down, causing the league to fold.
The Football Association has fought to bring the sport back to its roots here in England, resulting in the launch of a new brand. ‘England Football’ aims to inspire grassroots participation, bringing together people at all levels and areas of the game in one representative brand.
The perfectly-timed launch ad pulls in a range of personalities from mens, womens, and childrens football, as well as from international to grassroots. It is a classic feel-good sports ad, and one we’re happy to watch again and again and again… https://bit.ly/3unNJbE
