Hey Twitter – I Didn’t Post That Picture

While I think the roll out of the new galleries for twitter are years overdue, it would be nice if they did not display images which were linked in tweets I’ve retweeted as being mine.

Not My Picture Twitter

For example, this image which was linked in an status update which I retweeted from @SyFy appears on my profile as if I posted it. It’s only when you click on the image that it can be seen that it’s a retweet.

While this is very much a “first world problem” gripe with twitter, I feel that it misrepresents me if the gallery shows images I haven’t actually posted.

While I may feel that a post is worthy of a retweet (and in this case I retweeted it because it was a competition), that doesn’t mean that I wish to have that image associated with my gallery forever.
