Twitpic vs. Twitgoo vs. yfrog vs. img.ly
Last updated: January 18th, 2011
With so many third party image sharing service for Twitter, it is hard to decide which one to go for. Since there isn’t any comparison articles yet for Twitgoo vs. Img.ly, two of my remaining choices among the four, I decided to take a real look at them and compare all four Twitpic, Twitgoo, yfrog and img.ly.
Who would want to hand out their Twitter credentials to a third party website when they can simply link their Twitter account with the image sharing website in just two clicks.
At the time of writing, all (Twitpic, Twitgoo, yfrog, img.ly) are using OAuth to link Twitter accounts to their image sharing service,
except for Twitpic, which require you to enter your Twitter username and password.
Uploading methods and limitations by the service providers themselves.
