With Twitter adding its own photo uploads, we thought it'd be a nice time to go through some of the intelligent mashups that use photos posted to Twitter in an interesting way. I bet a lot of these will get some nice updates to integrate the official Twitter photo capability. First of all, we'll talk about the recent Mashup of the Day, Hashtagram.

  • Hashtagram: Search Twitter hashtags for Instagram photos, displayed in realtime and in a slideshow format. APIs: Amazon EC2, Instagram, Twitter. More at our Hashtagram profile.

    Now, that certainly isn't the only nice slideshow out there. If you want to see images based around what's hot right now, look no further than TrendImages.

  • TrendImages: Image galleries built around currently trending phrases on Twitter using Flickr photo search. APIs: Flickr, Twitter. More at our TrendImages profile.

    Now, for the ones with other interests than just what's hot, head on over to Twitcaps, a searchable index of every image linked to on Twitter.

  • Twitcaps: Watching the World: A realtime search engine of all the images being posted to Twitter. APIs: Lockerz, Tagul, TweetPhoto, Twitgoo, TwitPic, Twitter, YouTube. More at our Twitcaps: Watching the World profile.

    With all of these neat images, you might well be sending them left and right and sharing the fun ones. However, it'd be nice to have a sort of a journal, to remember them. If you're interested, head over to Journamatic, which links together a number of services to make an automatically updated online journal, utilizing almost every social network that's commonly used.

  • Journamatic: Connect your social media sites and Journamatic creates a daily journal automatically from your check-ins, photos, tweets and status updates. APIs: Facebook, Foursquare, Glue , Gowalla, Instagram, Miso, Netflix, PicPlz, Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube. More at our Journamatic profile.

    It'll be fun to see how all of these grow and change with the new official API. Have fun!
