Millions of people share photos on Twitter every day. We're going to make that easier than ever. Over the next several weeks, we'll be releasing a feature to upload a photo and attach it to your Tweet right from And of course, you'll soon be able to easily do this from all of our official mobile apps. A special thanks to our partner Photobucket for hosting these photos behind the scenes.

For users without smartphones, we're working with mobile carriers around the world so you can also send photos via text message (MMS). Share what's happening in your world, anywhere you are.

We're really excited about our new search and photos experiences and can't wait for you to try them. We believe both make a huge difference in making the world feel even smaller. The interesting part here is that Photobucket is the engine behind Twitter's service, rather than something of their own. Any of our readers know off the tops of their heads what the Photobucket ToS are like? Do they claim rights to everything you upload?
