Twitter rolls out picture search and uploads

If a picture's really worth a thousand words, this is going to bust your 140 character limit big time

Microblogging phenomenon Twitter has updated its search feature to show you not only relevant tweets, but relevant photos and videos as well. Use the search box on the Twitter website and you'll now be presented with a bunch of thumbnail images in the right hand column.

Twitter has also outlined plans to make photo sharing simpler. Some time in "the next few weeks" we'll see a new feature allowing you to attach snaps to a tweet from within, and this'll also roll out to all official Twitter mobile apps.
