It was rumored and talked about for some time now, and finally Twitter is rolling a setting called “Tweet Media” to some of Twitter users. This new privacy setting is strongly hinting towards in-line media such as photo and video, going to appear pretty sooner in your Twitter stream.

The description of this Tweet media setting reads as:
By default, you’ll only see images and videos shared by people you’re following, and reveal those by people you’re not. Check this box to see media from everyone on Twitter.
So Tweet Media setting asks you whether or not you want to see photos and videos from everyone. Many people have noticed and activated this setting in their account, but it is very uncertain that this feature has been active for anyone until now.
The only obvious question left from such a move from Twitter is that: What would happen to services such as Twitpic and Twitvid, if Twitter starts media upload and sharing service of its own?
