With the 2011 WWDC fast approaching, it seems that one of Apple's primary agenda is to integrate its upcoming iOS 5 into social media sites. There have been rumors about Apple's MediaStream service that enables users to view and share their photos. And now it seems that the popular micro-messaging service, Twitter will be incorporated with iOS 5 as well.
It seems that iOS 5 will have a Twitter integrated feature where uploading and sharing a photo is as simple as sending it directly to Twitter using the iPhone's Camera application, instead of opening the Twitter client for such purpose. If that's the case, it appears that this new photo service will serve as a key element to the major partnership between Apple and Twitter.
According to the report by TechCrunch:
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.
