16 Aug Twitter Adds Picture Sharing and Geolocation features
Twitter has added a couple new features that I wanted to share with you.
The picture sharing feature enables you to easily add photos to your Tweets directly from your Twitter Page. Adding pictures will allow you to make your tweets more interesting; you can show your customers pictures of your products, pictures of people such as new employees, pictures of places such as a function room, or even show photos of events.
To take advantage of this new feature just click the camera icon in the bottom left hand corner of the “Whats happening” box where you type in your Tweets.
Currently, the picture sharing feature is not available through mobile apps, but Twitter does have plans to add this feature as well as the enabling of image galleries.
The Geolocation service, Twitter’s Tweet With Your Location feature allows you to selectively add location information to your Tweets. By turning on this feature, you can include location information like neighborhood, city or town, or exact location where you tweet.
Keep in mind that if you use geolocation when you tweet-Twitter stores that location. However, you do have the option of switching geolocation on or off before each Tweet, and you can always delete your location history.
A survey conducted in June by the Pew Research Center reported that 13% of adults in the United States with internet access use Twitter.
