Twitter adds photo tagging, ability to have 4 photos in one post Twitter has rolled out two new mobile features for its service, one that it says should make Twitter "more social."
The first is photo tagging, which will allow tweeters to tag people in their photos without using characters. Says Twitter: "Tagging people in a picture makes conversations around photos fun and easy. And tagging doesn't affect character count in the Tweet -- you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends. If you're the one being tagged, you'll get a notification. You can adjust notifications, as well as who can tag you, in your Settings."

In addition, the second new feature is the ability to add four photos in a single Tweet. Adds the company in their post: "And now, you can also share a series of photos that automatically create a collage. Just tap on a preview to get the full image and slide through the group. The ability to upload multiple photos is starting to roll out today on iPhone, and is coming soon to Android and Whether you're on iPhone, Android or, you can view Tweets with multiple photos."

To get access to the features, you have to be using the latest version of the official Twitter client.
