Twitter Searchable #Stickers for Photos - Twitter #Stickers, a fun photo-editing tool that allows people to choose from hundreds of accessories, emojis, and props and stick them anywhere on photos they upload to Twitter. Any public Tweet containing a sticker is easily searchable and discoverable, creating a new visual spin on the hashtag; simply tapping on a sticker brings up a new timeline of Tweets from people around the world using that same sticker. Like hashtags on Twitter, #Stickers make it easy for people to explore a topic they're interested in, and join in on the public, global conversation.
"Millions of Tweets with photos are sent every day on Twitter, capturing the moments that the world is talking about," said Leslie Berland, CMO at Twitter. "#Stickers give people a fun way to add their own unique style to their photos, and connect them with others around the world. By making stickers searchable like hashtags, we're enabling the best of Twitter: making it easy for people to create conversations around events and experiences that are happening right now."
