That's a big step towards making twitter standalone.

We're rolling out two new mobile features that make photos on Twitter more social. One is photo tagging, which lets you tag the people in your photo; the other is the ability to include up to four photos in a Tweet.link [blog.twitter.com]Twitter Makes Photo Sharing More Social With Multiple Photos and Tagging
Tagging people in a picture makes conversations around photos fun and easy. And tagging doesn't affect character count in the Tweet - you can tag up to 10 people in a photo and still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends. If you're the one being tagged, you'll get a notification.
And now, you can also share a series of photos that automatically create a collage. Just tap on a preview to get the full image and slide through the group. The ability to upload multiple photos is starting to roll out today on iPhone, and is coming soon to Android and twitter.com.

I wonder when these features will be available for desktop users, and if it will be offered via the API?

Twitter becomes more like Facebook. Not good.

Well, twitter has to evolve, and the image idea is a good one. I'm not so sure whether it could ever become a Facebook, but it sure can provide a service that isn't possible on the other social networks.

They all seem to be converging. Twitter used to be a public space for conversations, FB used to be for communicating with friends and Linkedin for business contacts.

Now FB has added "follow" (as has Linked In), Twitter is adding tagging and keeps suggesting "people you may know". Tagging people is mostly useful for things like group photos which are more of a Facebook thing.
