Millions of photo tweets are sent everyday, capturing moments – big and small – that the world is talking about. Twitter introduced #Stickers, a fun new way to add creativity to photos and connect them to the world.
Soon, users can browse Twitter's rotating sets of stickers to join in on real-time conversations, and select from the library of hundreds of accessories, emojis, and props to make their photos more fun. They can use them to share what they're doing or how they're feeling, to show support for a cause, or to just add some flair. Multiple stickers can be utilised on a photo, which can be resized, rotated, and placed anywhere on the picture.
Twitter users will now be able to make their tweets visual and conversational and unleash their creativity on the platform through stickers.
After a user tweets a photo with stickers on it, it becomes searchable in a new, visual spin on the hashtag. Tapping on a sticker in a tweet takes them to a new timeline, where they can see how people all over the world use that sticker in different ways.
The ability to add stickers to images will be rolling out over the next few weeks for Twitter users on iOS and Android. They will also be able to view and click stickers on Twitter. #Stickers joins the suite of photo editing features, including filters, tags, cropping, and accessibility options.
