Below the selected input box, two icons will appear by the bottom left hand corner. The camera icon simply acts as a button which will allow you to find and select the photos you wish to upload. Once you’ve selected the desired files, you’ll see an attachment panel, which you can easily delete if you decide not to post the content.
Once uploaded your tweet will very much your other tweets that use services such as Twitpic, Yfrog or Picplz and will simply contain a short URL (which in turn, links to the photo).
