Timehop, that marvellous little service that helps you relive and share stories from the past based on your online activity on other platforms, has now added the ability for users to connect their Dropbox accounts.

That basically means you can now get all nostalgic peeking at all those photos you’ve backed up to Dropbox in the past. And if that includes photos you definitely don’t wanna see anymore, worry not, because Timehop will only surface the photos from the folders you pick.

Timehop will also leave out any text files or screenshots you’ve synced to your Dropbox account, and only show you pictures from cameras and phones, automatically weeding out duplicates to boot.

Earlier, Timehop added support for Facebook events and the ability for users to upload their Twitter archive.
