Head on over to the new Twitter.com and you’ll not only find new photo sharing and hosting capabilities, you’ll also discover closer integration with Amazon, Gowalla, Foursquare, AOL Video, Meetup, Plantcast and numerous other social platforms as part of the company’s new strategy to offer more features for their users to interact with.

The move shouldn’t surprise users of the network who witnessed picture and video integrations through third party vendors such as TwitPic and YouTube when they launched #NewTwitter last year. 2010 integrations ended with a bang when Instagram, Slideshare, Rdio, Dipdiv and Blip.tv were added to the mix.

The new program works as expected, when your friends have connected their accounts to their Twitter account those messages will be shared on Twitter.
