You will soon have two options to upload your lunch pictures with.


While Twitter’s own photo upload service powered by Photobucket is popular in itself, it isn’t quite as popular as Instagram is with all its filters for hipsters to revel in. Well, Twitter is finally caving in and competing.

The New York Times reports that Twitter has decided to add photo filters to its own service for mobile apps, in hopes to circumvent the middle man and get some of that traffic. More additions are being mulled, including the addition of video upload. It’s obvious that Twitter is feeling threatened with the amount of Instagram shares on Twitter considering Facebook has now acquired that service, so let’s see how they come on their own with it.

More choices for hipsters.
