Twitter draws on Facebook, mobile applications to display links in the form of cards

If you are a loyal user of Twiiter's mobile app, you will certainly notice that this weibo service has adjusted the way its links on iOS and Android apps are displayed. The URL disappears, replaced by a card-like news display format that closely resembles Facebook's approach.


@Twitter: We just updated the Summary Cards feature! iOS and Android will see more details on the page content in the timeline. https://twitter.com/twitter/status/621070548169134081

The new format makes the end user experience much simpler. Not only does the URL disappear-click the card to open the link-and this new way of displaying Twitter also lets Twitter show more relevant information before the user opens the link.
