Twitpic is an established provider of photo sharing services for users of Twitter. It has a large installed base of Twitter fans sharing pictures along with their short messages. The company is poised to explode its coverage by offering its first mobile app-it releasing Twitpic for the iPhone. The app, available now at the Apple App Store, enables users to easily share videos and photos on Twitter. They can also use the app to access content that other Twitter users have uploaded. It looks like Android fans will not be left out in the cold for long-an Android version is slated for release within a few weeks.
The app lets users view twitpics. They can also use it to add comments. Moreover, users can see the most popular content on a daily updated basis. You can even edit your photos. The built-in editor lets you rotate, enhance, and crop your images. There are even a few photo filters you can apply to your pic for that extra artistic effect. You can use these functions to make your photos stand out from other people’s shared pics. Twitpic was launched in 2008 and counts over 35 million users. The service is the first photo-sharing site that specializes in Twitter support. Twitter fans quickly made the service popular and it was adopted quickly. However, in recent years, Twitpic has faced some stiff competition. Its most notable competition, Instagram, which lets you quickly share your mobile phone pictures, was recently acquired by social network giant Facebook for a cool $1 billion. Moreover, Twitter itself is competing with Twitpic by rolling out its own photo-sharing functionality.
