News in brief: Twitter to go its own way with photo-sharing?

We don’t know what they’ll call it yet and no one seems to have an idea as to what it’ll look like, but the whispers are that Twitter is due to launch its own photo-sharing doo-dad sometime this week.

Did the TwitPic furore convince them to go down this route? Probably not – think how many images are shared on Twitter every minute. It’s likely they’ve had their eye on this for a while. Did the TwitPic furore convince them to get their skates on? Probably. Who wouldn’t want to take advantage of that marketing mess? And really, it seems a logical step, no?

Just remember to read the ToS, peeps!
