Twitter is testing a new feature called 'Stickers' to add images to photos before tweeting them, tech news site Re.code reported. The feature will also let Twitter users see how others around the world have edited the photo and will also suggest photos that could be edited and posted, to take part in trending conversations and breaking news, the report said, citing the company.
However, it is unclear where Twitter would get these photos or how it would determine which ones to recommend, the report said.
As part of the testing program with the users, Twitter is also suggesting names like 'Stamptags,' 'Taptags' and 'Stickits,' the news site said, citing a note sent to one test user.
Twitter could not immediately be reached for comment.
Recently turned ten, Twitter is a company with more than 300 million active users and is a microblogging sensation. Despite all of this, Twitter’s mandatory 10-K filing shows that the company is yet to turn a profit and has apparently lost over $2 billion since the company’s inception.
CEO Jack Dorsey had also changed some of Twitter’s core features since he returned to run Twitter permanently in October last year. Twitter has added “Moments,” which allows users to easily find tweets about the day’s biggest news stories, and changed the shape of its “favorite” icon from a star to a heart. Recently, the company also introduced Fabric mobile app with real-time alerts and analytics that will help developers build and monitor their apps that use Twitter APIs and works with the Apple Watch and Android Wear as well.
