I was just DM’ing a friend of mine on Twitter and got a pop up notice that Twitter has now added direct photo uploads! I know it had been previously announced at the begining of June, but doesn’t seem to have been rolled out until now, or atleast for me.

Thought this was very interesting.


Here is the page it directed me to



Essentially now when you click in your text box to tweet you will see the Camera Icon & Location Icon appear

Looks like they are limiting photos to 3MB or smaller.  I wonder what this will do to some of the dedicated twitter photo sharing services?


According to their support page

“Why can’t I upload images yet?

We’re rolling out this feature on Twitter.com over the course of a few weeks. If you don’t see the camera icon under your Tweet box, bear with us! You’ll get access to image uploads very soon.”
