  1. Klaudia,

    Thanks for the information!

    I’m not one to share a lot of pictures. And I’m rarely in the Twitter platform itself.

    But I can see where this will be an advantage to some, and I think it is a timely update.

    Will this change how you use Twitter?


    • Hi Keri, big thanks for your comment.
      Will this change how I use Twitter? I don’t think so, because like you – I’m not into sharing photos on Twitter.

      I believe this it a right direction for Twitter, waiting for more updates šŸ™‚

  2. Klaudia! I’m so new at twitter it’s unbelievable. I have no begun this journey of adding photographs!

    • Hi Jonathan,

      I think that it’s small but very user-friendly option which Twitter (finally) decided to add šŸ™‚

    Klaudia, you have clearly reminded me why I need to get a better camera than my iPhone one! Lol. Pictures are clearly powerful. In twitter, the timeliness of being at an event or capturing the moment is great. I find that Facebook lends itself better as photo platform. Anyway.. interesting to see the new development.

    • Hi Laurinda,

      ohh you just opened a big topic – “smartphones and their usability”, what kind of features our smartphones should have? Well for me: tons of apps (ok, so I like them) + good quality camera (min. 8 mega pixels, HD). I think Apple should work harder on their camera in iPhone (just saying).

  4. Thanks a lot, always wondered how to do that, will get pictures uploaded onto my twitter Timeline
