Photos + Videos = Twitter

picture 1409 Photos + Videos = Twitter

I wondered if I’d see this some day. Sure enough, it’s finally here. Twitter has just rolled out a new setting that you’ll see as “Show photos and videos from everyone”. This means that Twitter is now going to start embedding photos and videos from users in your stream. “By default, you’ll only see images and videos shared by people you’re following, and reveal those by people you’re not. Check this box to see media from everyone on Twitter.” I haven’t seen anything in my stream yet. The question I immediately think of is, what will happen to services such as TwitPic and TwitVid? It’s not clear, yet, if Twitter will be offering its own upload service or if the site will pull from the API of the already-existing ones. Twitter is constantly exploring features and settings. This will just be a small test of a potential consumption setting for inline media.
