Photobucket and Twitter Team to Make 140 Characters Worth a 1,000 WordsJune 7, 2011
Denver, CO—Photobucket, a dedicated photo- and video-sharing service, is now powering Twitter’s native photo-sharing capabilities to allow users to upload and share photos directly in Tweets.
Photobucket, with 100 million users and more than 8 billion uploads, is among the most robust dedicated personal media sites and a destination for creating, sharing, customizing and permanently storing all of its users’ memories. The company’s size, combined with its recently announced unlimited storage offering and patented mobile auto-upload capabilities, give Photobucket the ability to scale and serve the Twitter audience.
Millions of people have used Twitter to share, discover and communicate through 140 character Tweets. Now incorporating images helps users tell a richer and more complete narrative. Photos on Twitter, tagged “powered by Photobucket,” link to a page that lets users sign up for or sign in to their Photobucket accounts via Twitter to further edit, share or save their photos.
“Photobucket is the category leader with regard to reliability, size, offerings and scalability, and we are ready and able to best serve the growing number of Twitter users. Photobucket extends and enriches the Twitter experience, and we look forward to building on this collaboration with Twitter to better serve the needs of our joint audiences,” said Tom Munro, CEO of Photobucket.
