Twitter treats iPhone and Android users to photo tagging and multi-pic tweets

Your lunch from four different angles

TWITTER HAS ADDED some photo features to its mobile Android and iOS apps.

The firm added photo tagging and cluster photo posts. This means that lunch documenters and social butterflies can post a collage of photos with clearly identified people in them to the greater web.

"We're rolling out two new mobile features that make photos on Twitter more social. One is photo tagging, which lets you tag the people in your photo; the other is the ability to include up to four photos in a Tweet," said the firm as it dangled the feature at us.

"Tagging people in a picture makes conversations around photos fun and easy. And tagging doesn't affect character count in the Tweet - you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends. If you're the one being tagged, you'll get a notification. You can adjust notifications, as well as who can tag you, in your Settings."

These Settings will be the nub of things for many users, and some will presumably rush to dam off incidents of their mug appearing online, or will embrace face sharing to its fullest.

The default setup is to let other users tag users in the photos. These can be shut off through the account pages and the security tab.

Cramming visages onto Twitter has been eased with the multi-photo collage tweet that the firm has also introduced.

"The ability to upload multiple photos is starting to roll out today on iPhone, and is coming soon to Android and," added the firm. "Whether you're on iPhone, Android or, you can view tweets with multiple photos." µ
