Twitter is adding Stickers to their platform

Yes you read it well we are not talking about Snapchat this time but about Twitter. It won’t work exactly as Snapchat’s filters but more as emojis you can add in any picture you are uploading on the platform. True it sounds as “déjà vu” but what’s very interesting is that those emojis will work like hashtags. It means they will be searchable if there is a sticker for a big event you will be able to search for all other pictures taken during that event. How’s that sound?? You can read more about it HERE.

It is quite an odd situation as Facebook did everything to attract publishers at the expense of average users.
