Introducing a new way to experience Twitter pics: Facebook meets Twitpic with Crowdreel

Crowdreel delivers real-­time access to images posted on Twitter and lets you search, share and add context to pictures in your existing Twitter network

Toronto – Crowdreel offers an unprecedented glimpse into the Twitterverse, allowing users to browse tweeted images in real-­?time and immediately see pictures posted by the people they follow.

Nearly half a million images are uploaded through Twitter everyday. The problem is this content is lost in a sea of hard-­to-­navigate links. Crowdreel makes it easy to find exactly what you are looking for and uncovers content you might have missed out on in your feed.

This new service offers the ability to browse trending topics, popular retweets and content your followers are sharing – all without missing a tweet. The result is an enhanced, Facebook-­?like experience, putting what users want to see first.
