Twitter Goes Live with New Photo Sharing Feature

  • Twitter has made uploading photos possible for its users with a feature that shares images (up to 3MB).
  • Users can access the new feature on the Web version of Twitter by clicking on the camera icon (support for the mobile version is still in the works). Images are hosted by Photobucket and appear as links within the Twitter feed.
  • Hashtags can be added to the tweet to include images in Twitter’s search function. Users will also have the ability to comment on images.
  • “The founder of TwitPic, who turned down a $10 million dollar offer for the company in 2009, can’t be too happy about today’s feature launch from Twitter,” comments Digital Trends.
