Twitter Introduces New Photo Features

May 11, 2014

Besides giving its Web site a major facelift recently, Twitter also has announced a number of photo-related enhancements, which clearly are aimed at strengthening its user base and ensuring that it can better compete with Facebook and Instagram, the two most popular visual social media services out there.

Here is a quick summary of the new features:

  1. Post multiple photos

On iPhone or Android, use the updated native app to post multiple pics in a single tweet.

  1. Tag people

You can now tag up to 10 of your followers in a photo to bring them into the conversation. This would also be a good way to increase your fan base by engaging people in your followers’ social circles.

  1. Apply filters

Select one of eight filters from Twitter’s library to enhance your photos. Make your photos visually more stunning before you post them for the world to see and admire.

  1. Share privately

Now you can send photos in a direct message to your contacts. Engage influencers in your sphere by releasing breaking news pics to them first and engaging them to spread the word amongst their followers.
