add TwitPic for picture hosting, please!
have already a lot of pics there, think also other users have. PLEASE add TwitPic, thanks!!!
ptions for other photo hosting sites besides ow.ly.
Add the apility to chose an image uploader service, such as TwitPic or Yfrog or HootSuite!
It would be great if you could provide a feature to upload photo through twitpic, yfrog, plixi, etc., other than just ow.ly
I would like to see a different uploading service than "ow.le" Such as Twitpic. I would also like to see that we can choose the quality of the photo.
I already have a large collection of photos on twitpic.com and yfrog. Why have images on a third place? It would be great if hootsuite could support uploading images to third-party twitter image repositories.
We already provide a great service for picture hosting called owly to upoad your pictures. We understand people want to use different tools, as such we encourage developers to create apps for our app directory (http://hootsuite.com/app-directory).
Owly is chock-full of ads and spam. It's terrible.
Lance Hart commented
I was thinking of trying HootSuite again... but I see this issue has STILL not been address after all this time. Owly is unacceptable.
This issue was addressed almost a year ago with everyone agreeing that something needs to be done, yet, here we are. My followers have complained about not seeing a thumbnail on their timeline. Because of this, I'm cancelling my Hootsuite account. Next time, listen to your customers.

I am going to move to Sprout Social in 2013 because of this.
1. When using owly to send pictures to Twitter, they do not show up as icons in the twitter album. Not acceptable.
2. When posting pictures to Facebook, they are absolutely low quality and that is not acceptable anymore either.

We need a better picture hosting service, i am a pro member but not happy with picture hosting. I really dont understand why you saying the damn owly is great, I moved to Hootsuite because you acquired Seemic and wanted to familiarize myself with the platform before you shut down the seesmic site. Clearly nothing better with this platform, social media without pictures is soo DOS age.
Don't support multiple image hosts, I uninstall your tool. It's that simple. Do you think your tool is so unique?
Unfortunately, the yfrog service covers up the image with a popup ad instead of delivering the content in a proper manner. generally if I need to tweet a photo it will not be done from Hootsuite.
I'm afraid I have to agree with below...

#Owly does NOT show up in a tweet for everybody to see. To have to see it, users need to manually click the URL to go to another site. Without the text from the corresponding tweet. This imposed user behavior is from *BEFORE* the Industrial Revolution. That is to say: the first one ..
owly is TERRIBLE! it shrinks my pic even though it wasn't large enough to need shrinking. and the adds are distracting. TWITPIC FTW

"We already provide a shiity service for picture hosting called ow.ly to upoad your pictures and have them completely fail in the social realm. But you're welcome to improve that service on your own dime, thanks, since we are hoping to become the AOL of social media and don't want to allow other picture hosts. Thanks!" - Hootsuite
My engagement using ow.ly is about half as successful. What is being done to get ow.ly engagement up to snuff?
Boo Boo commented
"Ambassador of Happiness" is such a misnomer.
Yes, please. Having an ow.ly link show up in tweet instead of thumbnail is not cool I know it's not *technically* your fault, but since apps and sites don't generate a thumbnail for ow.ly, it's something you need to work around somehow.
Trevor Ray Thompson commented
I'm a pro user and am now officially canceling my plan because of this. Forcing us to use ow.ly for images is ridiculous. @trevoray
Didn't know we didn't have a photo service option on Hootsuite, this may bring me back to Tweetdeck sooner rather than later...
Dan Grabham commented
I have just moved over to HootSuite and it's really disappointing that you can't alter image services. The option to use TwitPic would be best. Indeed, am thinking of going back to Twitter on my iPhone just because the image handling is better.
Can you all reconsider this, please? I completely agree with all the comments below. Perhaps there's a technical or strategic reason to not support twitpic, but we're not seeing it and in the meantime TweetDeck does everything (including scheduling) that most users want.
Rob Maguire commented
I thoroughly agree. I'm a paid Hootsuite user, and I might move to another service so that my photos aren't split between TwitPic and HS. Also, photos tweeted through Hootsuite don't show up on your profile at Twitter.com. Forcing HS users to use your own, less functional photo service is a customer service failure.
