Stop and Check your Twitpics - don't get stuck

Check Your Twitpic uploads - it could be someone else's picture

Have you ever loaded a picture to Twitpic.com and added a comment to go with it? 

Have you ever checked the picture and it was not your picture?  There was an imposter picture?

That happened to me twice in one day.  It stopped me in my tracks!  Where was my truck pic?  Who posted that cement truck driving on the freeway?  Did the person who posted the cement truck get my picture, or somebody else's?

 

To delete an unwanted picture just go to your Twitpic home page where the uploaded pictures appear.  Click the little trash can icon to the right of the wrong picture.  stop

What I find amazing is how many views a picture will get almost immediately!  How does that happen?

Check your links after you upload your pictures.  And if you want to see some nice images of Maui Hawaii, follow me on Twitter.com

Thanks for following me....  @mauihunter

Hi Georgina - I've really underutilized TwitPics. But now that you mention how many views some of them are getting, it's time for me to take a second look at it!

Nope, I can't say that's happened to me, but I do wonder how a pic gets so many views so quickly.  I'm still getting there with Twitter, check out my latest post: http://activerain.com/blogsview/1011439/More-on-Twitter-and-Tweeting-What-are-you-doing

Have had that happen to me as well with twitpic - it was my caption and someone else's photo - hope I deleted it before too many people saw it - I was talking about my son (called him my boy) and photo was some unknown man.  Made me laugh.

Wow, never thought of this for twitpics.  I have checked shortened url's because I often get them from someone else and when I try to open them, they don't work.  Guess from now on I will check everything I send out.  It really is a good idea anyway. Thanks for a really useful post.

Joanne - Twitpic is just one of many services that will post your picture directly to your Twitter page.

Gary - it's a good habit to have - double check all links etc.

Sandra - have fun at REbar Camp!

Georgina...Great advice!  First, I guess I need to figure out how the photo portion works so that I can do that.  I have written your advice down first though, so that if it happens to me, I will be ready!  :)
