This week, Twitter began rolling out its own photo posting function that allows users of the micro-blogging service to share images without the need for a third-party app such as TwitPic. We've previously shown you how to use TwitPic to upload images to the micro-blogging site, but here we show you how to use Twitter's own integrated photo posting tool.
Share images with your Twitter followers
Start by signing-in to your Twitter account.
Click your mouse in in the 'tweet box', which is located under the heading 'What's happening' at the top of the Twitter window. Now press the Camera icon that appears at the bottom left of the tweet box.
A Windows Explorer box will pop-up. Use this to trawl your hard drive and locate the image you want to upload. Press Open.
A small thumbnail of the image will appear ion the tweet box. If you want to add some text to accompany your image, click in the tweet box and type your comments. Then when you're happy, press Tweet and your image will appear as a link on your Twitter page.
It's worth noting that at present Twitter's own photo-posting tool has only been rolled-out to web users and its not currently available through its mobile app.
