Twitter on Monday rolled out their new user galleries feature which shows users a gallery of theirs and their followers last 100 tweeted photos from major services including yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram and Twitter’s own native image galleries.

Users can find the new galleries on user profile pages when visiting Twitter through the standard web interface.

The gallery displays up to 100 recent images in chronological order, although videos won’t be displayed at this time and images Tweeted before January 1, 2010 are also not included in galleries.
