In a move that upgrades the social aspects of its photo capabilities, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) just announced that users will be able to include multiple photos – up to four – in their Tweets, as well as allowing users to “tag” photos – a feature that users of another popular social media site will find somehow familiar. The announcement is reproduced below.

Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) explains on its blog:

twitter tagging photos

We’re rolling out two new mobile features that make photos on Twitter more social. One is photo tagging, which lets you tag the people in your photo; the other is the ability to include up to four photos in a Tweet.

Tag up to 10 people in a photo

Tagging people in a picture makes conversations around photos fun and easy. And tagging doesn’t affect character count in the Tweet — you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends. If you’re the one being tagged, you’ll get a notification. You can adjust notifications, as well as who can tag you, in your Settings. To learn more, read this Help Center article.
