Twitter isn’t particularly known as the most “visual” of social networks, yet there are millions of photo Tweets sent each day, and Twitter has been working hard lately to improve its offering in this department – even launching emoji targeting recently. And now, to add to its suite of photo editing features, Twitter is introducing a new way for users to make images more exciting. #Stickers.
Announced in a recent blog post, #Stickers can be used to “make your photos more fun” on Twitter and you can
them to share what you’re doing or how you’re feeling, to show support for a cause, or to just add some flair. You can use multiple stickers on a photo, resize and rotate them, and place them anywhere on your picture.
Twitter says that you can browse the library of hundreds of accessories, emoji, props. And there’s more… #Stickers aren’t only visual… they are textual and searchable.
After you Tweet a photo with stickers on it, your photo becomes searchable in a new, visual spin on the hashtag. Tapping on a sticker in a Tweet takes you to a new timeline, where you can see how people all over the world use that sticker in different ways.
