Twitter launching its own photosharing service
Twitter has been pretty clear about where developers should stake their claim in the Twitter ecosystem stating to not build “client apps that mimic or reproduce the mainstream Twitter consumer client experience.” Well if thats true, Twitpic and yfrog can just give up now, along with every other photosharing threw Twitter service. According to several sources (and Techcrunch’s sources) Twitter is getting ready to launch its own Twitpic competitor and may announce tomorrow (articles about this going out may change that, naturally.) This isn’t a surprise as Twitter has been slowly taking over its API’s job, first with it launching mobile apps and updating its mobile site, then with it buying Tweetdeck. This is just the next step in its take over. We have no information on what it will look like or what it will be called, if anything it may be called twitphoto.me, which we don’t really get, but if it is that domain will be snatched up soon most likely (it isn’t now according to Godaddy). All we do know is that its coming soon, and if they’re serious about earning revnue there will be ads on it.
