You Can Now Tag People in Photos on Twitter

Twitter

Twitter announced new photo capabilities today. Users can now tag up to 10 people per photo, without the tags counting against the 140-character limit. Users have the following privacy options for photo tagging:

  • Allow anyone to tag me in photos
  • Only allow people I follow to tag me in photos
  • Do not allow anyone to tag me in photos

Those who have their Twitter accounts protected will be able to tag anyone they follow, but others won’t be able to tag them. There’s also a “Remove tag from photo” option that can be accessed from the “…” button.

Twitter has also introduced the ability to add up to four photos in a single tweet. “The ability to upload multiple photos is starting to roll out today on iPhone, and is coming soon to Android and twitter.com,” said the post announcing the news.
