Photobucket Joins Twitter To Offer Photo Integration

Twitter announced earlier today that their users will soon be able to attach pictures directly to tweets and that this capability will be coming soon to its official mobile apps and Twitter is partnering with Photobucket, an image hosting company that was founded in 2003, to host users’ photos.



Currently, Twitter users rely on a 3rd-party image hosting service, like Posterous, TwitPic, yfrog and others, to save tweeted pictures and video.

Twitter also announced a revamped search feature for the micro-blogging service that is promised to provide more relevant search results plus related photos and videos.

Twitter’s announcement today comes on the heels of a report by Techcrunch yesterday indicating that Apple’s iOS 5 will include native Twitter integration that would allow iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users to post pictures straight to Twitter.

Apple announced yesterday that Steve Jobs and other company executives will preview iOS 5 at next week’s WWDC keynote though the company has not yet released specific details about new features in this next major firmware version.
