Twitter Photo Upload: No Nude

,
Twitter Bird with Camera

Twitter Bird with CameraTwitter has finally launched the new API that will allow you to upload pictures directly onto twitter from the mainframe. This new service is being powered by Photobucket. If it has been a while since you heard that site name, you are not the only one. But this new pairing will likely make Photobucket competitive again. Along with the launch, it looks like Photobucket.com  gave itself a nice little redesign to make themselves more fresh and relevant.

But despite the website facelift, Photobucket is still not adult friendly. This is from their terms of service:

  • 8.4  contains nudity, excessive violence, or offensive subject matter or contains a link to an adult website;

Though it is not like most of the photo sharing third party apps are adult friendly and plenty of adult stars and sites use them for posting. Sure yFrog or TwitPic will occasionally delete a photo, but that doesn’t seem to stop anyone. I am sure that Photobuckets attitude towards adult will likely be ignored as well. Of course, how diligent will they be with deleting the pics and because of their association with Twitter, will it affect your account standing if you violate their TOS?

The big deal with the Twitter integration of photo uploading is that they are now directly competing with yFrog, Twitpic, Twitgoo, Lockerz and other third party apps.  Since the purchase of Tweetdeck in May, and now the integration of photo uploading, Twitter seems to be trying to corner the market on Twitter based applications. But no worries to the adult market here, SexyPeek and MyPornProfile are not even on the Twitter Birds radar.
