Hey developers,

We have just announced a couple of new exciting features at the All Things D conference, one of which is the ability to upload photos to

Uploading photos to Twitter is currently available on the desktop version, and its access is initially limited to a very small number of users. In the next couple of weeks, as we progressively ramp up the number of users who have access to the feature, we'll provide you with more details about how you can use the "Tweet-with-photo" API.
