Then Twitter must have made this update just for you! Looks like PC users have yet another reason to fuel that Mac envy. Twitter announcedthese “Twitter for Mac” improvements today:
- Photos: It’s easier than ever to share photos. Simply click the camera icon in the lower-left corner of the Tweet compose box, and choose a photo to share. If you prefer, you can still drag and drop photos from the desktop.
