Twitter announces own photo sharing service

Once again Twitter offends the sensibilities of developers of third-party applications such as Twitpic, yFrog and others with the announcement to launch its own built in image sharing service.

“We need to remove the friction from adding photos to Twitter,” Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said.

Costolo also announced that users of the new service “will own their pictures” what means that they will keep the copyright for their uploaded images. Twitpic just changed it’s terms and conditions and now has the possibility to sell their users’ images in cooperation with the english image agency WENN.
