Twitter adds photo galleries to profiles
As it continues bulking up the feature set of its previously minimalist site, Twitter has started adding an image-gallery section in user profiles.
The new gallery section will contain thumbnails of all the images a user has included on Twitter posts using either the site's native photo upload functionality or third-party photo sharing services like yFrog and Twitpic, according to the company.
To assemble the initial gallery, Twitter will round up all the images a user has posted since Jan. 1, 2010. The maximum number of images in a gallery is 100, and they will be arranged in chronological order.
Images can be viewed as medium-size thumbnails on a grid or as smaller thumbnails on a filmstrip with a large version of the latest image displayed below.
