Twitter User Galleries
San Francisco, Aug 23: Want to see the images you have uploaded in your tweets? Here comes Twitter User Galleries, a new service which aggregates the images uploaded by the user in their tweets.

User galleries on Twitter aggregate the images you've uploaded in your Tweets into an organized page where you can view all of your most recent images.

The microblogging website Twitter said that the images were collected through other photo sharing services yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram etc. Twitter may use other image sharing services supported in Twitter's details pane.

Navigating User Galleries:
* User galleries can be found on an individual users' Profile page.
* Clicking on View All will open the user gallery in your current window.
* There are two different options for viewing the galleries that can be changed in the upper right-hand corner of the gallery once it's opened:
- The grid view will show you thumbnails of all images we're able to display.
- The detail view will show you the most recent image, complete with the body of the Tweet displayed below it and thumbnails for other images above it.

Technical Limitations of User Galleries:
* User galleries will display up to 100 most recent images in your Tweets, in chronological order.
* Video thumbnails will not be included. Tweets with video links will not be included in user galleries.
* Images in Tweets will not be displayed if the Tweet was sent before Jan 1, 2010.

Users can delete the image by deleting the tweet itself. Twitter said some images will appear black if their content partner's servers are overloaded.
