Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Jon Erlichman reports on the significance of Twitter adding photos and videos to its feed. He speaks with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West." (Source: Bloomberg)

How big of a deal is this?

You do not have to take an extra click to see a video.

I think it is a significant development, emily.

The simplicity, the idea of tweets the more like headlines.

You have to add photos and videos to that.

Does that start to shift the story?

Is it more like facebook?

If users are cool with this, no suggestion they are not, it does open a large door to the advertisers and maybe makes it easier to explain the advertising story.

Twitter has been moving in this direction.

To have more real estate available and richer real estate in the form of pictures or videos available to them, that is a significant development.

Twitter reports its results tomorrow.

Maybe they are encouraging -- anticipating some encouraging comments.

You have also been following the other social network, linkedin, which just reported earnings.

Compare the advertising stories.

The thing about linkedin, advertising is part of its revenue.

It is not the dominant part of its revenue.

We have seen all of the business is growing.

Linkedin has been giving recruiters access to information and potential people.

The advertising business was growing as well, as were the number of subscribers.

There were some concerns about the guidance.

The company on the advertising side did talk about its transition to sponsored content.

The business has more than a quarter of a billion members, users and is growing internationally.

Jon erlichman, thank you.
