Twitter's mobile photo prowess just grew 10-fold, then by another 4-fold.
Now users can tag up to 10 people in a photo without affecting the character count of their tweet.
If you're tagged in someone's picture, you'll receive a notification, similar to how Twitter sends alerts when people you follow are talking about a certain subject or have followed the same person.
You can adjust notifications and who can tag you by diving into Settings, and Twitter has added some pertinent info to is "Posting photos on Twitter" support page.
Sharing is caring
In addition to photo tagging, Twitter will now let mobile users share up to four photos in a single tweet.
Instead of a side-by-side photo layout, your pic quartet will automatically form a collage. To view the full image, users can tap preview to see the slide, then swipe through the group.
iPhone users will see multiple photo uploads start rolling out today, and Android users and twitter.com users are due for the feature soon. On any of these platforms, users can view tweets with more than one pic.
Photo tagging and tweets packed with multiple pics will be viewable in embedded tweets.
