Twitter is introducing #Stickers, an upcoming feature that'll let users on the "news" app decorate and further personalize their photos.
According to the social media company, there will be "rotating sets of stickers." That means everyone will always get to see something new to plaster on their shots, allowing them to adorn their pictures with ornaments that complement practically any theme.
On top of that, the selection itself is pretty impressive too, as Twitter is putting up a library that consists of a ton of emoji, props and accessories that's sure to spice up even the blandest photos.
"Millions of photo Tweets are sent every day, capturing moments — big and small — that the world is talking about. Today, we're excited to introduce #Stickers, a fun new way to add creativity to your photos and connect them to the world on Twitter," Sasank Reddy, senior product manager at Twitter, says.

From what's currently revealed, there are a couple of nice pairs of shades, a smiling sun, a palm tree, a sunflower, a snorkeling gear, a drink with a miniature umbrella and a surfer for summer. For those who just graduated, the collection has a champagne bottle popping the cork, a mortarboard, a diploma, a set of books and a bunch of balloons, to name a few.
At the bottom of the menu, a panel shows that it distributes the stickers in categories, from featured ones to emoji and dining.
The hashtag in #Stickers isn't just for show either, as they are not only used to spruce up pictures but also to search for shots of other users. For example, when a sticker is tapped, Twitter will yield other stills that recently used that particular one. In other words, it's a visual hashtag.
On an interesting note, this is the latest addition to the social media platform's numerous tools to edit pictures, including cropping, tags, filters and accessibility options.
The #Stickers feature will be landing on Twitter for Android and iOS "over the next few weeks," so for those who are itching to try their hand at it, it's best to keep an eye out for it on the app.
