In a bid to keep up with Facebook, Twitter have incorporated the ability to tag your friends in your photos on your mobile with their ‘tap to mention’ facility.

You can tag up to ten people in one photo WITHOUT using any of your 140 characters.. About time too, we say!

Twitter have also added a collage option allowing you to add up to four photos in a single tweet, if you aren’t seeing any of these changes, get updating!

But if you don’t want to be tagged, fear not! You can opt out.  Simply go to your Twitter privacy settings and change your default setting for photo sharing “Allow anyone to tag me in photos” to either only people you already follow can tag you, or turn it off completely. You can also untag yourself from any photos by tapping the three dots below the tweet and select “Remove tag from photo.”
