You know how Facebook lets you add ‘stickers’ on your uploaded photos? Well, now Twitter has it too, but there’s a particularly useful ’twist’ to it. Dubbed #Stickers, it allows you to ‘stick’ stuff like emojis, props and ‘accessories’ anywhere on the photos, but that’s where the similarity with Facebook’s stops. Tweeted image that has a sticker slapped on it is searchable and discoverable. In other words, the sticker is essentially a visual version of the good’ol hashtag. This means, tapping on a sticker will bring up a series of Tweets by people who happen to use the same sticker. Pretty cool, huh? Basically, #Stickers is a funner way to discover stuff on Twitter.

While it may be fun, we do see a pro and a con. Pro being it eliminates wrong hashtag used due to misspelled word and con, as we see it, the sticker will kind of block the image, albeit a tiny one (the sticker is resizable and rotated, btw). But hey, some like their images unadulterated and so, even a speck could turn out to be an eyesore to them. Just saying…

A library of stickers in several categories will be offered and this include Accessories, Animals, Food, Technology, Flags – just to name a few. In addition, there will be a Featured category highlighting Live Stickers “tied to world events, holidays or other themes.” You know, the usual Twitter’s doings, just that it will be in visual form.
