Twittergram update

Saturday, October 6, 2007 by Dave Winer.

Last night I opened up the picture processing part of the Twittergram service.  Permalink to this paragraph

It's the second scenario in Thursday's post about web architecture.  Permalink to this paragraph

A picture named monasmall.jpgThat means that anyone can sign up for the service, and links to all their pictures will be posted to their Twitter account. A lot of new people are using it, but learning that too much of a good thing can be, er.. too much. So I'm going to have to put some constraints on it, like this: no more than five pictures per hour? So they queue up after that? Not sure. You could ruin an account by posting too many pics (it might take a long time to clear the queue). This is going to take some thinking and perhaps experimentation. Ideas are welcome. Permalink to this paragraph

Follow all the pics in the picstream account. I clearly should do a page on the Twittergram account that shows all the pics. Already some people are using it for R-rated pictures. Oy. This might get more "interesting."  Permalink to this paragraph
