Twitter Launches User Photo Galleries

Twitter, Google+, and Facebook are one step closer to becoming clones of each other (at least when it comes to photo sharing) — Twitter has rolled out photo galleries that display the 100 most recent images Tweeted by users in chronological order.

The images included in user galleries can come from Twitter, yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram and other image sharing services supported in Twitter’s details pane. [#]

To view a user’s gallery, simply visit their Twitter page and click the thumbnails on the sidebar.

Clicking an image in the gallery brings up a higher resolution version (screenshot is of Trey Ratcliff’s gallery):

If you don’t see the galleries yet, it’ll probably be rolled out to you within the next day.

    I noticed this today when I saw the icon in my profile. Problem is, it isn’t a picture I took, but rather a picture taken by a friend that I commented on.

    I just looked at my (@tyleringram:twitter ) and it shows photos that I haven’t seen, let alone took. Perhaps it shows retweets of other ppl’s photos too or something?

    It is definately showing retweeted images. But it is not showing my last 10 much less my last 100 images.

    How much did Trey Ratcliff pay, or trade, you for that product placement?

    Two sheep, five brick, and three wheat. We can work out a deal too if you’re rich in resources ;-)

    It’s just that _everyone_ is bigging him up at the moment, when actually there are so many good photographers worth giving exposure to. Have you seen Robert Scoble on Google+? fawn fawn fawn over Trey Ratcliff, it just makes me wonder.

    Ah, I see, I see. Was just easier to quickly look up someone who I knew would have a screenshot-worthy Twitter gallery instead of spending time looking for a gallery that’d work. 

    I’ll try to diversify more in the future. :)
