Twitter Is Testing An Option to Add Stickers For Posting Photos.


Twitter is allowing for a new product it’s calling “Stickers” that would allow user add images to photos before tweeting them out.

According to Twitter, the feature will also allow you “see how other users from around the world have edited the same photo” and will also “suggest photos that you can edit and post to participate in trending conversations and breaking news,” recode.net reported. 

As per reports from Recode Twitter is currently testing photo stickers with some users as a way to garner feedback on Stickers, it added. The new feature will also allow the user to see how others have edited the same image and suggest pictures from current trends as well as breaking news for a user to edit.

As part of the testing program with the users, Twitter is also proposing names like 'Taptags' and 'Sticks,' Re/code said, citing a note sent to one test user.

There are no confirmations as where Twitter will source photos from or how it will decide images to prescribe to use and even the networking portal also not shared any information about the possible take off in the coming days. 

A spokesperson told Recode, “We’re always researching potential new ways to make Twitter more expressive.”


The feature would be yet another way that Twitter is hoping to encourage people to post more photos into their timeline. Different proposals are under consideration as alternatives for the name of this new feature such as Sticks, Taptags, and Stamptags. However, so far it seems that the name of this new feature will probably be Stickers. Many viewers believe that the addition of this feature might expand MAUs for the micro-blogging site which it desperately needs.

Twitter will not be the first company to announce an option to add stickers to photos as other services such as Facebook already permit users to add stickers while Snapchat allows users also add emojis to photographs and videos. As of now, there is no word when the feature to add stickers to the photos will be accessible to all users.



The micro-blogging site recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. On the occasion, Twitter said that, now there are 320 million users including different celebrities and also declared that the platform sees 500 million tweets per day and 200 billion tweets every year. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also confirmed that the platform may never remove the 140-character limit as it is the feature offering "a unique identity" to the platform.
