Twitter has released rumored built-in photo filters feature for Android and iOS devices. Twitter for Android update includes this new feature already, and it will arrive to iOS devices sometime today. The app now offers eight filters, including “black&white, vignette, cinematic, vintage, warm, cool, happy and gritty” tones. You can also edit the image straight in app, cropping, zooming and auto-image enhancement included. Aviary, the company behind these filters says “each filter was designed from the ground up exclusively for Twitter.”
This is straight response to Facebook’s purchase of Instagram earlier this year. Facebook ended the support for Twitter cards wiping out Instagram photos from Twitter and leaving only links to Instagram’s website.
After cutting out Instagram photo cards from the Twitter, company is going to introduce their own picture filters before the holidays, according to report from AllThingsD. Jack Dorsey, Chairman of Twitter, just posted a photo on his Twitter account, and it looks like that he’s using filters on his photos without using any 3rd party app. Now it’s highly believed that Twitter is going to launch it’s own picture filters, and users don’t need to use 3rd party apps to share those photo goodies. During thanksgiving holiday, Instagram reportedly added 200 photos every second, over 14 million for the day overall.
Oprah hasn’t been hiding her feelings toward Microsoft’s Surface tablet. Earlier this month Oprah tweeted that Surface is one her favorite things. This morning, Oprah tweeted again her love towards Surface tablet, telling that she’s bought 12 of them already, but still she uses Twitter for iPad app to do so.
Oprah have prepared list of her 48 favorite things, and Surface tablet is in that list, along side with Beats by Dre powerbeats and many other tech gadgets. I think that Oprah don’t know very well that there’s also some Twitter apps for Windows RT tablet, such as Tweetro, Rowl and Metro Tweet. Twitter has also promised that it will launch it’s own app in coming weeks or months.
Seems that Oprah tweets love for Surface by using it’s competitors device, but yeah we all do that, right? Not really i guess.

According to report from NYTimes, Twitter is developing Instagram-styled photo filters to it’s mobile apps in the coming months. There’s no official word from Twitter, but it seems that new feature is direct response to Facebook’s purchase of Instagram. Instagram have become the most number one social photo sharing app and Twitter wants to get their share of the photos sharing success by creating their own feature similar to Instagram.
Twitter also would like that it’s users would take photos by using it’s own platform and now Facebook owned Instagram’s. Facebook hasn’t give any indication that it would start restrict services that Instagram can plug into, but surely if Facebook would cut Twitter away from Instagram, Twitter won’t be too happy about it.
