Photo Sharing Released on Twitter

This week Twitter finally released its photo sharing tool to all users of the social media giant.

When updating your feed, a camera icon will appear at the bottom, allowing you to upload an image up to 3 MB large. Users are excited but the feature is not yet available on mobile devices, which many use to access Twitter. How far will this feature go and what other photo related features does the company already have in the works?
