Until now we’ve had to use outside services such as Twitpic and Instagr.am to share pictures on Twitter – this could all be set to change.
Twitter is expected to present plans for its own photo-sharing service at this week’s D9 conference in California, in a speech expected tomorrow from CEO Dick Costolo. TechCrunch, first to report the rumour, thinks the service could be delivered via twimg.com, a site which Twitter has owned since July 2010.
Twitter is working hard at monetising its services, meaning we may potentially expect ads alongside any new services. Last week Twitter announced it had bought client Tweetdeck for a rumoured £24 million. It seems safe to conclude Twitter is keen to secure more control over the user experience.
