Why are my Twitter images displaying as ow.ly links?

There are two Twitter image upload services available for Hootsuite users, ow.ly (managed by Hootsuite) and pic.twitter.com (managed by Twitter). All Twitter accounts have pic.twitter selected by default, but if you’re seeing an ow.ly link instead of an image in Twitter natively, it could be that ow.ly is selected as the image upload service in your account.

Super admins or admins can select an image upload service for an organization.
