Twitter Photo Features for iOS and Android

Twitter on Wednesday announced two new features for its Android and iOS apps. The first feature is the ability to tag photos, while the second option allows for up to four photos to be included in a single Tweet.

In a post on its official blog the company reveals that up to 10 people can be tagged in a single photo. According to Twitter’s César Puerta (@CesarDielo):
“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.
