Twitter Supes Up Photo Sharing, Adds Tagging For Android and iOS
Looks like Twitters are trying to make their users photos even more social friendly on their social networking sites.
The mirco-blogging services has decided to update their iPhone and Android apps to enable photo tagging. This means users will now be able identify the people within the photos they post on the site, without eating away any of their character count on their tweet.
“Tagging people in a picture makes conversations around photos fun and easy,” Twitter software engineer César Puerta wrote in a blog postWednesday. “And tagging doesn’t affect character count in the tweet — you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends.”
To tag someone, simple click on the “Who’s in this photo?” once the user has added their images, then type either the complete name of the person or their @username, and tap Done, When someone else has tagged on the posted photo, the user should receive a notification,
If the users are worried of any of the additional photo tags will lead to a disgusting jumble of messy images once they’ve posted it online, no worries. Its possible to adjust who is allowed to tagged the picture on the Settings menu.
Furthermore on the photo front, users can also now share up to four images in one tweet, instead of just a single time. When users share multiple images, Twitter will automatically create a miniature collage of sorts. Then simply tap onto the thumbnails to see the full images, then slide to see the rest of the photos in the group.
The capability to upload multiple photos will be launched out today on iPhone, and will be arriving Androids and Twitter.com sometime soon, thought you will be able to view the tweet of several pictures regardless of which platform you are currently viewing it on.
