Twitter Adds Native Image Uploading

After a few months of waiting and at least a year or two worth of speculation, Twitter has finally launched its own image uploading service. No longer will you have to go to imgur or one of the other quick photo sharing services online - you can do it right through Twitter.

Posting a photo is as simple as can be. Click the photo icon on your new Tweet and select the photo you want to use. Your photo will then appear as a link. If you click on the particular tweet, you'll see the photo in the pane on the right hand side. You're limited to 3MB or less. Exif data is wiped from the image when it is uploaded.

Twitter is rolling this update out over a few weeks, so you may not immediately see the feature available, but it'll be there.
