Twitter rolls out more media options
This week, Twitter quietly rolled out an update to their service that gives users a chance to showcase their uploaded images, and the images they’ve retweeted from others. Essentially, it creates a photo gallery very similar to the Facebook gallery you’ll find at the top of every profile page.
When Facebook’s top gallery first came out, people got really carried away customising it. Unsurprisingly, the tech heads have got together again and created a video tutorial showing how to customise your Twitter photo gallery.
Business users can showcase products, logos or a specific message on their page, hopefully inspiring the admiration of those all-important “key influentials” on Twitter.
The only downside is that images only show up if they’re uploaded to Twitter or sites like Instagram and Flickr. I’ve tested it out with an account that feeds in most of its content from its company Facebook page, and none of the images show up.
It’s also worth remembering that any photos you tweet in the future will push your customised gallery back, so you may have to repeatedly upload them.
If you want to try customising the gallery on your Twitter profile, take a look at the video below.
