40% of all photos on Twitter now come from Apple iOS devices

“Combined, the iPhone accounts for at least 39% of all photos posted to Twitter, largely due to Instagram and Twitter for iPhone,” Matthew Panzarino reports for TNW.

The massive sales of the iPhone 4S haven’t hurt either, with millions of new users of Twitter being minted by the month. Twitter has been pushing the integration hard too, with a fancy landing page aimed at demonstrating how Twitter integrates with iOS.”
