A couple of weeks ago, Twitter released their own photo upload tool so users could post their photos without even leaving the site. Now, whether you use their new photo service or third party services like Instagram and yFrog, your photos are soon to be featured on your Twitter profile.
They’re called “user galleries” and according to Twitter Communications Manager Carolyn Penner, they began rolling out yesterday (August 22nd). She tweeted, “We’re rolling out one of my fave features today: user galleries! View photos an account has shared on Twitter. Sit tight – it’s coming soon”.
The galleries will display up to 100 most recent images in your Tweets, in chronological order, and can be found on an individual users’ Profile page.
Twitter offers two different ways to view the galleries:
- The grid view will show you thumbnails of all images we’re able to display.
- The detail view will show you the most recent image, complete with the body of the Tweet displayed below it and thumbnails for other images above it.
For more information about how to use the “user galleries” feature, see the Twitter Help Center.
Does this new feature encourage you to upload more photos on Twitter?
