Twitter Adds More Multimedia Content

Twitter now allows users to access more multimedia content from Amazon,AOL Video, Gowalla, Foursquare, Meetup and Plancast without leaving the site.

Last year, Twitter released #NewTwitter that allows direct integration with third-party tools such as DailyBooth, iTunes, Ustream, YouTube and TwitPic. With the integration, users are be able to see images or watch videos directly in their Twitter stream when a link from a supported service appeared in the tweet.

Twitter has also added five services:, Instagram, Slideshare, Rdio, Dipdive  within the stream in December.

Now the six social tools are integrated into Twitter. So when your friend tweet a link from Amazon,AOL Video, Gowalla, Foursquare, Meetup and Plancast, multimedia from that service will appear.

After the launch of #NewTwitter, several startups have also created tools for embedding third-party content into the Twitter stream.

Will this feature make you use Twitter more? For me, it will.
