Twitter picture service offers photo grouping like Flickr

A social median’s dream

According to Mashable, Twitpic.com, the service bought by Twitter to host and tweet pictures now offers a photo grouping feature much like Flickr groups.

Although users cannot (as of yet) upload pictures to another users’ group, each independent user can group their own pictures into a single group and give their social sphere a place to go where all of their images taken during a single event are hosted. By clicking the blue button (like under the arrow in the picture below) of the event’s given name, all images will be on a single page rather than on the user’s public timeline amongst other unrelated images.

For example, Benn and I host a free event every month with 300 to 400 attendees by the end of the night called a #BATHH (Big Ass Twitter Happy Hour) and after each happy hour, there are pictures on Flickr, Twitpic, Facebook and more, but if we wanted to encourage attendees to use a common place to host pictures they take in real time, we could ask them to use the events feature on Twitpic with a common hashtag or phrase.

It would be great if they offered an embed feature allowing for a slideshow to put on your blog or the option to have a single group that multiple users could contribute to, but for now it’s a great starting point for organizing photos from events.
