Change Your Twitter Image Upload Service

There are two Twitter image upload services available for Hootsuite users, ow.ly (managed by Hootsuite) and pic.twitter.com (managed by Twitter). Newly added Twitter accounts will have pic.twitter selected by default. Super admins or admins can make this selection for an organization.

Using pic.twitter.com as an image upload service will display as ow.ly when composing, but will update to pic.twitter.com when posted.
