  • Whenever I take photos with my iPhone, I generally always use TwitPic first and if it doesn’t work, I then use Yfrog. I’ll continue to use TwitPic until it disappears or i can’t access it from my phone any longer.

  • I’m in the same boat, Jeffro. All Twitter apps I have are set to use Twitpic and I will continue to do so. I also think that Bit’ly’s popularity is overblown. I would love to know how many people actually use from the site itself.
