Twitter is expected to introduce its own photo-sharing service to compete with third-party companies, reported TechCrunch.

All Things Digital’s Liz Gannes said that an official Twitter photo-sharing feature could be easier to use than current services, which require registration for a separate account on a separate site.

The micro-blogging company has been looking to tighten its hold over the whole Twitter ecosystem. In March, Twitter told its developers to move away from creating applications that copy the service. Last week, the company announced it will acquire TweetDeck, one of the most popular Twitter clients.

Would you prefer an in-house photo-sharing service on Twitter? Or do you think you’ll keep using a service such as Twitpic or yfrog?
