How to: Add picture to Twitter

Since long ago Chinese cyber-users are able to send "tweets" with the Chinese microblog Sina Weibo (新浪微博). This simple feature is surprisingly not yet a built-in feature of its Western equivalent "Twitter". To add pictures and images to a tweet on Twitter, you need to use one of these platforms:

Twitpic: Twitpic is the largest and most popular image sharing service on Twitter. To to it you need to log into Twitpic first (you will be asked to log with your existing Twitter username and passwords). Uploading a picture to a tweet just takes a few clicks. The tweet then gets sent via Twitter and appears properly in your Twitter account.

Pikchur: A multi-platform app, Pikchur lets users share images automatically in multiple places, including Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed, Tumblr, and Flickr. Sign up is optional, meaning you can get started very quickly. Twitgoo: Same look and feel than Twitter, Twitgoo asks its users, “What are you lookin’ at?” It is integrated into a number of third party apps, including favorites like Tweetie for Mac and TwitterBerry. yfrog: Yfrog is extremely simple of use, with a singular purpose in mind. Upload, log in, share — that’s it, but that’s all you need, right? Picktor: Picktor helps users more easily share photos across multiple social sites. The new dead-simple Twitter image sharing service uses Twitter’s oAuth implementation, so you rest easy knowing your login credentials are safe. Do you need help with your online strategy?
