Twitter on Monday announced a new feature that will start rolling out soon, searchable #Stickers to adorn your tweet images with. With this feature, users can put multiple stickers on a photo, resize and rotate them and place them anywhere on the image before it’s tweeted out.
These rotating sticker sets are categorized and include hundreds of accessories, emoji and props to make your photos more interesting and fun.
“Use them to share what you’re doing or how you’re feeling, to show support for a cause, or to just add some flair,” said Twitter.
“After you tweet a photo with stickers on it, your photo becomes searchable in a new, visual spin on the hashtag,” says the blurb. “Tapping on a sticker in a tweet takes you to a new timeline, where you can see how people all over the world use that sticker in different ways”.
Once you take an image with the Twitter camera or import one from your library, you can add up to 25 stickers to it. Stickers can be added by hitting a new Stickers icon from the selected photo, which pulls up a library of stickers to choose from.

After placing a sticker on your photo, move it around by holding and dragging.
To tilt, enlarge or shrink a sticker, place two fingers on either side of the sticker and turn the sticker clockwise or counterclockwise to rotate, or slide your fingers apart or together to resize. To remove a sticker from a photo, press and hold on the sticker, then drag it to the bottom of your screen until the trash can icon appears.
You cannot edit stickers when retweeting someone else’s photo.
The ability to add stickers to your tweet pics will be rolling out over the next few weeks in the mobile Twitter app for iOS and Android, said the company.
You will also be able to view and click stickers on Twitter.com.
Facebook’s Messenger has had stickers for a long time and has recently rolled out a bunch of new emojis within the mobile Messenger app. iOS 10, when it releases this fall, will bring support for downloadable stickers and apps for Messages.
