Flickr adds Twitter integration

Flickr has launched Twitter integration. The Flickr Blog reports that Twitter functionality has been added to the photo management tool.

You can upload photos to both Flickr and Twitter, or use the functionality to tweet about an already existing photograph. The system will automatically shorten the url using a "flic.kr" URL.
