Twitter Photo Storage and Account Integration in iOS 5

MG Siegler on Twitter’s imminent but as-yet-unannounced photo-hosting service:

We’ve heard from multiple sources that Twitter is likely to have a big-time partner for such a service: Apple. Specifically, we’re hearing that Apple’s new iOS 5 will come with an option to share images to Twitter baked into the OS. This would be similar to the way you can currently share videos on YouTube with one click in iOS. Obviously, a user would have to enable this feature by logging in with their Twitter credentials in iOS. There would then be a “Send to Twitter” option for pictures stored on your device.

So close to the bigger story, but yet so far. Imagine what else the system could provide if your Twitter account was a system-level service.
