For those who think that Twitter is all about text, you’re wrong. Twitpic will be rolling out video support that allows Twitter users to share their clips at their own leisure. Although services like Twitpic is fun for vanity purposes, they have had their fair share of action in spreading newsworthy images from eyewitnesses who managed to capture world-changing events on the spot thanks to the quality of cell phone cameras these days. Twitpic images, too, have become part of the news themselves, and until today, people have posted YouTube links to Twitter whenever they need to spread the word about an important video. According to Twitpic founder Noah Everett, “Users will be able to upload video from the site itself, email, and clients that support the new video option. Everything else basically works the same. We’re trying to be a one-stop-shop for users to share their media on Twitter in real-time.” The future will see video integration into the Twitter web interface as well.
