Twitter is looking forward to adding a new facility to its social media network. Currently, the microblogging website is working on a feature called ‘Stickers’ to let users add images to photos before tweeting them out.
This new feature will also enable users to see the photographs edited by other Twitter users and provide with the suggestion to pictures that can be edited and posted. It will also let them post the photographs for participating in trending conversations and breaking news.
As of now, Twitter is testing this new feature with limited users in order to get feedback from them.
“We’re always researching potential new ways to make Twitter more expressive,” a spokesperson said.
Re/code’s Kurt Wagner also reported that Twitter may call the new feature “Stickers”, but also said that some other names are being held for consideration too like Stamptags, Taptags, and Stickits.
Currently, there is no information as to how Twitter will get these photos or to determine which one are to be recommended. One good guess is that the site may categorise photos based on their associated stickers.
Twitter is a little late on experimenting with the stickers feature. Some other social giants are already using the stickers feature such as Facebook allows users to add stickers in chat, comments, etc. and Snapchat, which enables users to add emojis to the photos and videos.
