Twitter is always trying to be more engaging and expressive for users… and if that means allowing users to be creative with their images, then so be it. Twitter seems to now be testing a new feature called “Stickers”, with a small group of users. It allows users to add images to photos before tweeting them.
Both Facebook and Snapchat allow users to edit visual content, and add stickers to it before sharing it with the world. Up until now, this is also something celebrities could also do on Twitter, with a special app called Twitter Camera. Now, Twitter is doing the same with a small pool of users.
When, or even IF this feature will be available to all is anyone’s guess. A user called @XBLFoxes who let the cat out of the bag on the feature, explained that Twitter was not even sure whether to call it “Stickers” or not.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
What we do know is that it will allow you to “see how other users from around the world have edited the same photo” and should also “suggest photos that you can edit and post to participate in trending conversations and breaking news.” How Twitter will decide which photos to suggest is also unknown, but there might be a categorisation based on the type of sticker used on an image.
This theory comes from the names that Twitter is asking users to rate. A name that implies “tagging” also implies categorisation. What do you think?
