Twitter added a couple of new features on Wednesday. You can now add four photos to a single tweet and for the first time, you can tag up to 10 friends in a Twitter photo, without taking away from your 140-character count.

The photos you add will appear as a four-part collage in your timeline. If anyone clicks on one of them, they'll get the full picture. In Tweetdeck, however, the pictures appear to simply follow one after the other.

For now, the multiple photos can only be uploaded via iPhone, but Twitter said in a blog post that Android and functionality will follow shortly.

The friend tagging feature, now available to everyone, works pretty much as it does on Facebook. You tag your Twitter friends in the picture, then the friend gets a notification. He can delete or amend the tag.

Twitter will let you control who can tag you in a photo, but the default is that anyone can. That could lead to a lot of awkward and erroneous photo-tagging of celebrities.
