Rumour: Twitter to launch photo-sharing service


Until now we’ve had to use outside services such as Twitpic and 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, 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.

  • The Twitter photo-sharing service is all but certainly expected to become the company’s latest branded application. Reports suggests that Apple is baking Twitter into the operating system to help users post photos they’ve taken on their iOS devices directly to the service.
