Twitter just added stickers and they even work like hashtags

Twitter is getting in on the sticker craze, and doing it in a fun and unique way.

Very soon you'll be able to choose from a selection of visuals to add to your photo, including sunglasses and hats and emoji and everything you can think of. You can attach multiple stickers to an image and then upload it for the world to see.

But the social platform is doing things a little differently with this new feature. Users will be able to tap on a sticker in any photo and they'll be brought to examples of how other people are using the image. It's a kind of visual hashtag, giving Twitter fans a very simple way to discover what other creative sorts are up to on the platform.

This system has the potential to be a huge deal for Twitter and it's hundreds of millions of active users, helping to encourage more photo sharing and aiding discovery of similar guys and gals around the web. That means more interaction, more engagement and more stories shared from everywhere around the world.

Stickers are rolling out to the Android and iOS apps soon and should also be available on desktop.
