The latest version of Twitter for iOS and Android allows you to tag a maximum of 10 people per photo and add up to four photos per Tweet.
User can now tag maximum 10 people in the photo and If you are one of them to get tagged in a photo, Twitter will send you a notification. If you don’t want people to tag you in their photo then you can manage it via Settings and Privacy section of Twitter. You can also select that who can tag you from the Settings as shown in the picture below.
To do this, follow the simple steps from the Twitter’s web interface or via Settings in Twitter’s iOS or Android app.
- Tap on Settings icon which you can see at the top right corner
- Then from the left sidebar, tap on Security and Privacy
- Under Privacy, tap Photo tagging and select your privacy option.
If you enable photo tagging, you can adjust your settings so that anyone can tag you or only People that you follow can tag you. You can also remove tag from a specific photo by tap into the detail view of the tweet then tap on the ellipsis sign and select Remove tag from photo.
I often write on this blog, the photo is increasingly important on Twitter. With this new ability to add up to 4 photos on one message, Twitter is trying to push its users to post more pictures on its platform.
This new feature to upload multiple photos is already available on the iOS version and will be soon available on Android and Web versions of Twitter.
How to add multiple photos in tweet?
From the Twitter’s web interface, click on Add photo. From the iOS or Android device, tap the camera icon to take a photo, or choose a photos from your gallery. Once all 4 photos are selected, you will see a thumbnail images. You can select maximum 4 images to tweet at once.
To view multiple photos, just tap on the preview to get the full image and slide through to see more.
