Twitter Launches User Galleries For Image Organization

Yesterday Twitter began to roll out User Galleries, a brand-new feature on that aggregates the images that users have uploaded in their tweets into a single organized page.

The galleries will accept images from Twitter, yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram and other image-sharing services that are supported within Twitter’s details pane.

A maximum of 100 of the most recent images will be displayed in chronological order in two different flavours: grid view, which shows thumbnails, and detail view, which shows the most recent image. Video thumbnails are not supported, neither are images shared in tweets before January 1, 2010.

Galleries can be found on Profile pages – Twitter uses the LIFE magazine profile to show how this will work.
