Twitter is adding new features that will allow users to tag multiple people in a photo and attach up to four images to a tweet.

The social media giant, which boasts almost 650 million active users, announced the changes on the company's official blog Wednesday.

Twitter software engineer César Puerta said people can now tag up to 10 people in a photo and "still have all 140 characters at your disposal, making it easier to connect with your friends."

Users also have the ability to adjust the notifications they receive, as well as who you can tag them in a photo, by adjusting the apps preferences under the Settings function.

A second new feature will also allow you to "automatically create a collage" by attaching up to four photos to tweet, Puerta said.

The multiple photo feature has started appearing on iPhones, and Twitter will soon make the changes available to Android users.

Twitter users, however, can still see the new upgrades no matter what device they are using.

The features are available by downloading the latest version of the Twitter app.
