I suggest you ...

Upload images directly to Twitter.com (not to ow.ly)

You can now easily upload images and share images with your tweets directly from twitter.com no need to use any other website or application. Can you please add an option to upload images via HootSuite directly to Twitter.com and not to ow.ly?

        Why isn't this option more visible! I just spent the last hour in a cold sweat trying to figure out why a picture uploaded through hootsuite wasn't displaying my picture correctly on my twitter feed and only had a link instead. Waste of my time! Honestly. I get it. You want us to use your owly picture vault but, really, no one wants to. I really like your link shortener though!

        Dumbest business decision in the world to make a basic key functionality to Twitter a pro feature on your non-essential platform.

        Hi guys. My company is on Pro and our tweets are current;y going out with image links and not actual images. Not sure if this is a result of the recent update to the Twitter profile page design , but the pics posted via Hootsuite are not appearing in the Twitter timeline.

        Please can you fix this feature as there really is no point in sharing images that can't be seen.

        Seeing that our business is paying for your services, it would be great if our content could be correctly represented (ie. not via an image link, but an actual image).

        Thanks

        Hi!

        This is a great improvement but, what happen with the ow.ly click stats we had when we used ow.ly links to those pictures before? How can we evaluate click through on those pic.twitter.com pictures?

        Thanks!

        I tried it tonight, and have changed settings as directed above, but when you look at Twitter, it still says click for image.........

        This is great news! I have just tested this and it works great. Thanks for listening Hootsuite, this is a very welcome move. :-)

        Please add this option to Hootsuite! I'm embarresed that I'm not able to add an image to my tweet!

        I still don't understand why the images have to be hosted by Ow.ly... why can't we post directly through Twitter through Hootsuite? It's frustrating... and I'm losing traffic because no previews of my photos show and any photos I do post don't show in my photos/video folder on Twitter. For a service that's meant to consolidate all my social media it's frustrating to have to go back to the individual social media sites to post messages with 'photo's - defeats the whole purpose...

        Got feedback from Hootsuite Help Desk on Feb 27, 2014:
        Images posted Twitter from HootSuite are hosted by Ow.ly and, as such, always display with an Ow.ly link. That being said, there should be a View/Hide option in order to expand and view the image in-stream.

        The ability to post directly to Twitter would certainly be useful and this is under review by our Developers for future releases.
