Twitter to include rich media in your timeline... Maybe?

This is truly exciting news -- Mashable broke the news today that Twitter will include pictures and videos in the twitter timeline. It truly enriches an otherwise what could be a very dry twitter experience.

Once concern from the community is: "Can the already stressed out twitter infrastructure handle this kind of move?

Or does it mean that we will see more of this?

The "inline media" was made available to select accounts for a few hours; though, almost as soon as the news broke, it sounds like twitter rolled it back.

Mashable says they received a note from twitter saying:

We’re constantly exploring features and settings. What you saw was a small test of a potential consumption setting for inline media. We show inline media on our own iPhone and Android apps.
