Twitter today announced the debut of two new features: photo integration and improved search capabilities.

Twitter has partnered with Photobucket to allow you to attach a photo within a Tweet rather than using a third-party image hosting service such as TwitPic. The feature will be rolling out over the next few weeks to twitter.com and the company’s official apps.

The new Search facility deliver more relevant Tweets when you search for something or click on a trending topic, but it will also show you related photos and videos, right there on the results page. More details in the video below:
