Twitter has of late made several changes to its platform. From excluding links from the 140-character limit to allowing users to retweet and quote their own posts, Twitter has added many new features to make the platform more interactive and user friendly Now, Twitter has now introduced ‘Stickers’ feature, which will be available for its Android and iOS app users.

Twitter stickers are basically emoji that you can added on top of a photo, just like the ones on Snapchat. So before you upload a photo or tweet it, you can pick and drop a few stickers on your photo before tweeting it. The stickers can be resized, rotated, and moved around and placed anywhere in the photo. Users will also be able to view and click stickers on Twitter.com.
The most interesting part about Twitter’s stickers is that it works with Twitter’s traditional hashtags. For instance, if you tap on one Sticker on a particular post, you will be taken to a timeline of other people using the same Sticker on their photos. It is very similar to Snapchat’s Shared Stories, which bring together snaps from people all over the world.

With the new sticker feature Twitter has joined the likes of Facebook’s Messenger, SnapChat, WeChat and LINE, which also support similar feature for stickers. Since stickers are already a huge rage in the social media world, we think that the Twitter’s stickers will help images and pictures look cuter on the micro-blogging platform.
