I’ve been a relatively long-time Mobypicture user. After registering at the site in December 2007, I’ve send more than 75 photos to the microblogging service. Although my recent adoption of Tweetdeck persuades me to use Twitpic sometimes, I still appreciate the mobile function of Mobypicture a lot. Also because of the Flickr and WordPress integration.

Twitter / Ernst-Jan Pfauth: New Orleans, THE best wifi ...The only hurdle to take is the sign-up at the horribly designed Mobypicture site (a new design is on its way). Founder Mathys van Abbe took that barrier away by offering a new and easy email feature. In a post titled Mobypicture <3 Twitter van Abbe notes:

Send an email or MMS containing a photo, a title (subject) and optional a text (body) to:

[email protected]
(so for example: [email protected])

Your photo will be published (see picture) and you’ll then receive a DM with instructions for sign-up, which you can also choose to ignore. This feature is particularly handy for those who don’t own an iPhone or a smart phone that supports a Twitter app. Happy photo emailing!
