Twitter is beginning to introduce a new facility to let users post cartoon-like stickers to photos they share via the tool. From the beginning the choice of stickers will include charity and nonprofit symbols to enable users to show their support for a good cause. Twitter’s new stickers function will give uses another option with which to enhance the visual impact of the photos they share, in addition to animated GIFs and emojis.
Stickers let you know a little more, not least because photos posted with stickers on them become “searchable in a new, visual spin on the hashtag”. If you tap on a sticker in a Tweet you will discover a new timeline listing photos posted by others using the same sticker.
You don’t have to use just one sticker – you could use several. They can be cropped, resized and rotated.
Twitter’s announcement of stickers refers to “rotating sets of stickers” so there is a possibility that not all nonprofit or good cause stickers will be available at all times. There is also a strong likelihood that the good cause stickers will focus on major, well-known charities, as the company’s announcement referred to a “library of hundreds of accessories, emoji, and props to make your photos more fun”.
