Evening,

So I bought this mega pack of Kit Kats and it arrived via courier yesterday morning. When I realized that 1/3 of the box is now gone I took a photo and hit upload to Twitter (from inside Photos). 

I gave it a witty caption and sent it on it's merry way. Later when I check my Twitter I see that Mango uploaded the image to Skydrive then shared my Skydrive image with twitter. Sneaky!

Loaded the official app (ugh!) and uploaded it from inside there and it worked properly. So beware!

That's how it works. Other apps use Twitpic, Mango uses Skydrive. Nothing wrong with it.

While your right there, it does not forewarn you it will do that.

The main thing is it created a new album on Skydrive, photos in this album are not linked to my Twitter account. When you hit my name and look at recent photos (which I'll admit are shamefully thin on the ground - I'm working on it) all Skydrive photos are not shown.

Essentially the app is not behaving the same as it does for other networks. Facebook for example uploads to Facebook, not to Skydrive.

In the end it's a matter of opinion.

Don't judge me for my vanity! :D
