Twitter Introduces New Photo Sharing Feature, Headed to Official Android App “Soon”

YouTube Preview Image

Twitter is sure making the best of June 1st with a couple of major announcements.  This morning they introduced the “Follow” button which websites can embed on their sites to allow for quick follows from readers rather than through that ugly blue bird button we have over to the right that no one uses.  Expect us to toss it into the fold in the next couple of weeks.

The other things they introduced are a new version of search as well as a photo sharing feature.  The new Twitter search will actually give you real results including videos and photos –  the photo sharing feature will allow readers to upload and tweet photos without having to leave Twitter.  It should be available in the coming weeks on the web and in their official mobile apps “soon.”  Twitter will use Photobucket as its photo host.

And in case anyone was wondering, the song is Brett Dennen – Sydney.

    When they roll this out are they going to make the official app suck less?  I used to use it since I couldn’t delete it and it served my needs.  But I swear it keeps getting worse and worse.  On the last update it removed the unread message count that showed up in the notification bar, and it stopped remembering where you were in the timeline.  That feature only recently came about anyway, but after the last update it worked sporadically.  Not to mention since it’s original inception we’ve lost the unique animations that showed that an app didn’t have to look like shit on Android and orange-highlights on hyperlinks stopped working, too.  I’ve since gone back to Tweetdeck.

    if a picture’s worth a thousand words, does that mean you can only send 1/10 of a picture?  :P

    I must be missing something… they changed their button from a blue square with a bird to a blue rectangle that says follow and call it a big announcement
