Twitter launched its own photo sharing service yesterday to all users. You may have noticed the new icon for photos underneath the update box if you use the web interface.
This new service started rolling out for users a few months ago, but yesterday it finally became available to all users, not just the selected few.
I gave it a quick test this morning to see how it works, and so far I’d have to say it’s pretty simple to use. When you click the update field to type out a new tweet, the box expands (like normal) but you’ll notice a camera icon right below the input field. Clicking this icon allows you to upload an image to share.[...]
I still see a lot of guides popping up online on how to effectively use Twitter for business or personal gain. I find most of them comical because they are written by people who have no idea on how personal relations work. For example, one method I saw explaining how to succeed with Twitter stated [...]
I follow a lot of people on Twitter that I have met in real life, or have already known. But most of the people I follow I have never personally met. If I had to pick 10 people I’d like to meet from Twitter, those 10 might include the following people: @divinewrite – Glenn Murray [...]
Twitter for Android, the official app released by Twitter for Android phones, was updated yesterday. The new release includes some heavily requested features, such as multiple accounts and push notifications. I had avoided using this app for a long time as I was already pretty happy with Tweetcaster. But since I’m always looking for the [...]
Twitter recently announced that they will soon begin to pass all shared links through their own URL shortener. This would apply to any link posted using the web interface or through third party applications such as Tweetdeck.

If your goal is to be successful with Twitter, then you should avoid the following behaviors at all costs. The [...]
Two weeks ago I wrote a little opinion piece about changing the color of your Twitter avatar to show support for a cause. My wife and I don’t agree on everything, and when I spout off with something like this I try to keep her eyes from seeing this blog for a little while. For [...]
Do you know what day it is? It’s Follow Friday! People are going to be handing out recommendations to their followers, giving them advice on who they should follow. Bundles of names will clog up Twitter timelines while tributes are passed around like Valentine’s Day cards. Everyone is going to have a great time and [...]
I don’t know if you noticed this or not, but yesterday I flipped my Twitter account on its ear. I changed my username, started a new account under my old name (@robmcguire), and then announced on my old account where people could find me if they wanted to reconnect. This wasn’t an accident; I chose [...]
I am not going to change my avatar color, nor am I going to change the color of my tweets for your worthy cause. I didn’t change my avatar to green to show my support for democracy in Iran, and I’m not going to change my avatar to red to show my support for World [...]
