The rumor mill has been churning Monday afternoon with reports that Twitter is working on its own photo-sharing service that would compete with the likes of Twitpic and Yfrog.
TechCrunch first reported the tip, citing multiple unnamed sources, Monday afternoon. And now All Things D seems to have confirmed the story as well, going so far as to say the service will be announced this week. ATD's story also cites unnamed sources, but claims the announcement will be made at its own conference, D9, this week in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
It wouldnâ€™t come as too huge of a surprise if these reports turn out to be true. After Twitter asked developers to stop building third-party clients, the company announced its acquisition of TweetDeck. Although it took months for those rumors to finally be confirmed too, so we may be hearing this rumors for some time before Twitter makes any official announcement.
We've reached out to Twitter for a comment and will update this post when we learn more.
UPDATE: Twitter's spokespeople have responded, and they're not commenting on the report.
