Although Twitter's Web app does not include a service for uploading videos or images, the Twitter apps specifically designed for Apple iOS devices, Google Android phones and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 allow users to post both images and videos. When you include an image or video with your Tweet on Twitter mobile, the app automatically compresses the photo or video, uploads the media to a host site and creates a shortened URL attached to the Tweet. Once posted to your Twitter feed, the videos and images are viewed by your followers when they click the link provided in the tweet.
