Twitter adds photo tagging feature, bumps attached photo limit to four per tweet

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Twitter on Wednesday announced two new additions to its ubiquitous microblogging platform, including a photo tagging feature and a loosening of the per-tweet picture cap.

A post to Twitter's official blog notes users can now tag up to ten people in a single photo attached to a tweet without affecting the total 140-character text count.

By default, users will receive a notification when they are tagged in a photo, though alerts can be customized in app settings. Privacy options can also be adjusted in settings, including restrictions on who can tag you. Competing social platforms Facebook and Instagram have included similar photo tagging features for years.

Perhaps more useful for many users is the ability to tack on up to four photos in a single tweet. When attaching multiple photos, the app automatically arranges them into a grid-type collage that can be viewed in full quality using tap-and-swipe gestures.

According to Twitter, the two new features will be rolling out on its iPhone app

Not a big twitter user - Facebook already does everything I need. Plus these additions are just making it more like Facebook.

Good. That one photo limit was annoying.

I use Twitter and FB in very different ways. I can't see how FB could ever be a Twitter replacement for my usage.

Just the opposite for me. I have never used Facebook and plan to keep it that way. As for Twitter, I starting to use it more and more. I am liking these new features.

Just as long as Twitter never adds social gaming (farmville), I'll be happy.

I use neither so the photo limit doesn't affect me.

Thought I'd add that nugget of information to the comments.
