Twitter may unveil own image service Tuesday

Twitter may have TwitPic rival soon

A last-minute rumor has Twitter near launching its own image service. More than one tip hinted that an equivalent to Lockerz, TwitPic, Yfrog and other services was about to arrive as soon as tomorrow. The TechCrunch tip didn't say what if any differencesit would have over other services.

The San Francisco tech firm has been increasingly folding more of its development in-house and has been acquiring companies such as Atebits as well as TweetDeck to either adapt it to an in-house project or to cover a category largely unchanged.

Its motivations for an image service could center around economics. Twitter encourages promoted tweets but has little direct monetization of its own. A self-run image service could launch ads against the million of images shared every day and give the company revenue without having to disrupt users' feeds.

A service could squeeze out some image services. It may not necessarily affect many third-party apps since these can use rivals.
