San Francisco, California – Twitter, the massively popular microblogging provider announced that it is planning to launch a photosharing service provider similar to Twitpic and Yfrog. According to Multiple sources, twitter is almost ready to announce its photosharing website within this week or within this month but Twitter spokesmen still has not confirmed the news.

Twitter user relies on third party software to upload photos and linked them to their tweets since twitter does not offer a photo sharing service. Twitpic and Yfrog are the popular choice when it comes to twitter photosharing and the plan of twitter to launch its own photosharing service is bad news for both Twitpic and Yfrog. Many startups were able to ride the success of twitter through third party software such as twitlonger and tweetdeck which allowed users to extend the usual 140 character tweets and bit.ly which shortens URL to fit in the twits.

Just this month, twitter purchased Tweetdeck for $40 Million to support its problems in server which causes server logs and system overload. Ryan Sarver, the Lead  platform developer of twitter announced that it would not be funding third party software rather than built new features and develop their own software just like the photosharing services provided by third party software’s Twitpic and Yfrog.
