Twicli upgraded with new features|
(Monday, August 17, 2009 - 17:30 EDT)
Last May, we covered the beta launch of a new service designed to ease sharing of photos and videos through popular microblogging site Twitter.
Created by Sam Street and Sean Miller, the London-based programmers behind photo gallery website Picli.com, the Twicli website has today been upgraded with a number of new features. Among the most significant updates are the ability to tag fellow Twitter users in photos shared with Twicli, as well as support for larger file sizes, higher quality video, geotagging and more. Courtesy of the Picli blog, a full list of changes in Twicli are as follows:
Support for audio uploaded via the web and via email. If your phone supports audio recording and email - this couldn't be easier.
Tag your twitter friends into your photos. Similar to Facebook's user tagging feature but with more control.
Friend Activity shows you what your twitter friend's have been uploading.
New Multimedia tweet box with full control over how your tweet will appear. This is the easiest way to upload photos/video and audio and then send a tweet via the web.
Mixed content sets. Don't spam your friends with 5 pictures in a row. Upload a group of photos into a set and tweet one URL that leads to your content. You can mix photos, videos and audio in a set and this also works via email. Great for sending a batch of photos + videos at the end of the day.
Your twitter background + profile image. The transition from Twitter to Twicli is almost seamless. All images are cached on the Picli static servers so if you change your background on Twitter, your theme wont break on Twicli.
Geodata and Google Maps. Photos are now automatically geotagged (but users must opt in to enable this to protect their privacy).
View all sizes of a photo.
Higher quality video. Previously Twicli's video formatting was an experimental system. They are proud to announce higher quality video conversion. Your videos now have thumbnail images to help
Larger file sizes. In the past the filesize limit for videos was 50MB. To celebrate this new version of Twicli the limit for videos is now 100MB. Audio files can be up to 50MB in size.
