Twitter to Release App Update With Photo Filters by the Holidays?
Twitter is reportedly pushing hard to release an app update that will bring Instagram-like photo filters by the holidays, reports AllThingsD.
The goal is to release the camera filters in an application update in time for the holiday season, these sources say. The new version of the app is currently in testing, which may be why we’re seeing Twitter chairman Jack Dorsey post so many black-and-white filtered photos of his Square employees (not to mention the wing of his plane at takeoff, posted just this Saturday morning).
Notably, this follows a move by Instagram last Wednesday to prevent photos shared from its service from being viewed in Twitter via the 'Cards' functionality.
