NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Twitter (TWTR - Get Report) is moving to look more like Facebook (FB - Get Report) in the photo sharing world. The social media company announced that it will now give users the option of photo tagging, one of two new photo features that are a part of its updated mobile app, launched on Wednesday.
In order to make photos more social, users can tag up to 10 people per picture, which doesn't affect Twitter's notorious 140-character count per tweet. The company said in a blog post on Wednesday it wants to make photo sharing easier to connect with friends. Users who are tagged will get a notification, which can be adjusted in settings.
Twitter is also allowing users to include up to four photos per Tweet, with the series of photos automatically creating a collage. Users will need to download the updated Twitter app to their phones to get the features.The ability to upload multiple photos is starting to roll out today on the Apple (AAPL) iPhone. The new features will be available soon Google (GOOG) Android and on Twitter's Web site. --Written by Laurie Kulikowski in New York. Follow @LKulikowski
