alternative picim


pic.im is a new and cool service from tr.im for sharing images within services like Twitter. Like tr.im, pic.im collects and then presents cool graphical reports for your shared images, such as how many times they were visited, from which locations, and referred by which websites. With pic.im you know exactly how many people clicked to see your images, and from where.

If you share images on Twitter, pic.im is not only the best name, it is one of the shortest. And because it is 100% integrated with tr.im, if you have an account at tr.im, you already have a pic.im account, and vice-versa. You can combine all your URL sharing needs in one place.

Update: Twic.li


This topic supposed to hold 5 sites but this site also rocks. Twicli is a free service that allows users to upload both photos, audio and videos through the Twicli platform and display them to their friends on Twitter.

Twicli has been designed with user experience in mind. We want the site to look and feel like Twitter offering a seemingly seamless transition from one site to another.

Users can upload photos and videos and comment on each, these comments are then broadcast on twitter via the means of @replies. The Twicli frontpage features the most recent content uploaded by Twitter users.

Twicli is powered by Picli’s social photography technology alongside integration with the brilliant Twitter API.
