PRESS RELEASE: TweetPhoto Introduces A Better Way to Share Photos On Twitter
Free photo sharing service for Twitter significantly improves photo sharing experience; TweetPhoto launches new photo sharing service to do more than the basic uploading of photos; Cloud hosting and storage for high performance.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 6, 2009 -- TweetPhoto introduces free photo sharing service which revolutionizes photo sharing on Twitter, the popular micro-blogging service which allows users to communicate world-wide in short messages of 140 characters or less via the Internet. TweetPhoto allows users to easily upload and automatically publish links to photos on Twitter. The new service boasts many toolsets currently unavailable on other sites which make photo sharing on Twitter convenient and transparent.
Twitter is a real-time communications tool requiring users to be at their computer or checking their mobile devices constantly in order not to miss tweets from their favorite celebrity or best friend. Once tweeted, a tweet message or photo can be very hard for users to find. Recognizing the rapid nature of Twitter communication and the difficulty locating previous tweets with links to photos, TweetPhoto is changing the way photos are accessed and shared by Twitter users. TweetPhoto improves the photo consumption experience by extending the life of photos beyond the tweet. This empowers users to view photos shared by the people they follow on Twitter so they never miss a photo again.
As a user follows more people in Twitter, their 'social river' or information stream can quickly become difficult to search due to the overwhelming amount of information to sift through. "As more people use the service the velocity of the social river of tweets increases exponentially. This makes it exceedingly difficult to view every tweet, especially the ones with links to photos. TweetPhoto was specifically designed to meet this challenge," stated Rodney Rumford, co-founder of TweetPhoto.
TweetPhoto greatly improves the user experience for those people who share photos on Twitter through the service. The capabilities include:
- Upload photos via mobile phone and the web to TweetPhoto; share through Twitter and Facebook
- Favorite the photos you like
- See who views your photos; favorites your photos, comments on your photos
- Track how many people looked at a photo
- Automatically geo-tag photos sent from a GPS enabled phone
- Use an integrated URL shortening service, http://pic.gd

- Self-moderate comments
- Search tagged photos throughout the site
- Subscribe to RSS feeds by user or tags
