Twitter for iPhone to offer photo filters
Twitter is set to release an update to its iOS and Android apps today that add Instagram-like filters to photos in the app. In a blog post released yesterday titled "Twitter photos: Put a filter on it," the company announced the new feature:
Every day, millions of people come to Twitter to connect with the things they care about and find out what's happening around the world. As one of the most compelling forms of self-expression, photos have long been an important part of these experiences.
Starting today, you'll be able to edit and refine your photos, right from Twitter. The latest versions of Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android introduce a few new ways to enhance the images you tweet. We're grateful to our partner, Aviary, for powering our filters and effects.
The update comes just days after Instagram killed photo integration with Twitter. Is this return fire or a long-planned update? Who knows. But here's what users will care about: the new updates allows users to apply an assortment of eight filters to photos, crop them and auto-enhance light balance.
As of this writing, the Twitter 5.2 update, which brings the new photo features to the app, is not yet live in the App Store. However, expect it sometime today. In the meantime, check out the video below showing off the new features.
