Speaking at the AllThingsD conference today, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo showed off how Twitter's new photo-sharing feature will work. The new feature, which will compete with third-party solutions such as TwitPic and yfrog, will let Twitter users share images directly in their timeline. Twitter says that the service will be rolled out over the next few weeks to the desktop version of Twitter followed later by a mobile client for most smartphone platforms. The photos will be hosted by Photobucket, and Twitter is working with wireless network operators to allow images to be uploaded to Twitter via MMS messages. In addition to the new picture service, Twitter also announced new search tools that it says will deliver more relevant results.
