Twitter is by far one of the most popular social networking sites in the world. The year 2012 opened to a fresh batch of over 300 million users who have signed up for the site. Even though it has gained hundreds of millions of users, Twitter still does not have any application that would enable people upload images or photos with their captions. As a result of its major downside, a lot of services have been popping left and right to accommodate the glaring hole. These services will help you, the Twitter member, to upload your photos or images in a cinch to the Twitter timeline.

Here are 5 ways you can make your life easier in uploading your photos on your twitter account:

  1. Via “yFrog.”

This service works in a couple of ways. You can either upload your images or videos directly through it or upload them by entering the URL where you got the image from. The service also functions by letting you enter texts along with the image that you plan on uploading. In order for you to use yFrog, you’ll have to enter your Twitter login username and password. Then the process will carry itself to upload both your texts and images to your timeline.

You can use this to help you upload and share images that you might want to show off to your friends on your Facebook and Twitter timeline. The service also gives you a chance to choose your friends photo tweets and add them as your “Favorites.” You will find that Lockerz can also perform geo-tagging capabilities which means, wherever you go, the service will track your current location based on the images taken in real time. This will make it a lot easier to find where the images were shot.

  1. Via “Pikchur.”

This service not only works with Twitter but it also does its jobs on other social networking and blog sites such as Flickr, Facebook, MySpace and even the aging Friendster. There’s no need for you to sign up and you can easily use any login name and password from any of the social networking site and begin sharing images or photos to your friends or relatives to anywhere around the globe.
