Remember the old adage “A picture’s worth a 1000 words?”, with Twitter’s latest upgrade a hash tag can be worth 1000 pictures or videos.
Twitter will now be officially attaching Photots and Videos to peoples Tweets and associating them with Hashtags. There will be no more need for Yfrog, TwitPic or TwitVid. This will allow for a more seamless media experience to compete with other Social Networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn.
“A native photosharing experience will be rolled out to 100% of users over the next couple of weeks,” Twitter CEO Dick Costolo told the attendees of the D9 Conference.
They will also be releasing a Top Videos & Photos section of Twitter.com so you will be able to filter through at Trending Media by hash tag.
From Twitter’s YouTube Video Description:
“Twitter brings the most meaningful information in the world right to your pocket. And, it’s never been easier to get a sense of what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world, or to share what’s happening in your world. Twitter search now delivers more relevant search results, alongside related photos and videos. And, you will soon be able to upload a photo and attach it to your Tweet directly from http://twitter.com.”
