Twitter updates its mobile apps with multi-upload and photo tagging


Twitter has came up with an update to its mobile apps. In an effort to “make photos more social”, the network added the option to multi-upload photos while posting a tweet, and let users tag up to 10 profiles in it. With the changes in place, the good old 140-character tweet can now contain up to four photos. Tagging, meanwhile, works by tapping "Who's in this photo?" and typing in a username. Similar to how Facebook tackles this business, tagged users will be notified and have the option to approve or deny tags. Also, both photos and tags will be displayed in embedded tweets.


The update has already reached Twitter's iOS app, while the Android version is on its way to Google Play. Sadly,Windows Phone and BlackBerry aren't mentioned *cue in the Low Market Share orchestra*.


Compared to other social networks, Twitter has been keeping relatively quiet lately. It hasn't enforced a radical redesign upon its unsuspecting users yet. It hasn't even bought any virtual reality companies, or any companies for that matter. Vine's successful launch remains the last major event in the social network's history, and that happened what seems to be eons ago. Oh, we almost forgot - the service held its own in a remarkable fight against government censorship in Turkey, but that's not related to technology. Hopefully, the network is cooking up something big for 2014. Otherwise, we can't help, but ask – dear Twitter, where's the innovation?

What about that inbuilt browser I tipped about? It is quite a useful feature, and quite handy too.
