Twitter For Google Glass Now A Reality

By: Chris Crum - May 16, 2013

It’s a big day for Twitter. Not only did it strike a deal with Yahoo to get tweets in Yahoo homepage newsfeed, but now they’ve announced the launch of Twitter for Google Glass.

There have been reports in recent weeks that Twitter was working on this, and now, here we are.

The app lets you share photos to Twitter, and the the tweet will automatically include the text, “Just shared a photo #throughglass”.

“In addition to sharing photos, you can also keep up with the people you follow on Twitter through notifications — for mentions, DMs and Tweets from users for whom you’ve turned on notifications,” says Twitter engineering manager Shiv Ramamurthi. “As always, you can reply to, retweet or favorite these Tweets.”

Glass users can go to google.com/myglass and turn on Twitter, and they should be good to go.

According to reports, Facebook, Tumblr, CNN and Evernote will also be launching Glass apps today.
