Twitter Updates iPhone App with Photo Sharing

by Todd Wasserman

A day before Apple is expected to release its iOS 5 update with Twitter integration, Twitter has upgraded its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad app with new features, including photo sharing.

The 3.5.0 update, introduced Tuesday, includes an upgraded direct messages design on the iPad and the ability to tap a location on the iPad to show nearby tweets. The most significant upgrade is a feature that lets you take a photo on your mobile device and then upload it to pic.twitter.com.

With the new update, Twitter will further compete with Moby, Twitpic and Heello. Twitter rolled out its photo-sharing feature to all users in August in preparation for iOS 5.

Twitter reps could not be reached for comment on the update.
