Twitter Debuts Photo Filtering After Instragram’s Exit

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Following Instragram’s pull of support for Twitter cards, the social network on Monday debuted a new filtering system, providing users with a number of capabilities related to photo posting.

Among them: Eight photo filters including vintage and black and white, comparison functionality, cropping and auto-enhance.

The new capabilities are made possible from a partnership with popular photo editing app Aviary.

“Starting today, you’ll be able to edit and refine your photos, right from Twitter. The latest versions of Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android introduce a few new ways to enhance the images you tweet,” stated Twitter via its blog.

Last week, users began noticing Instagram photos published via Twitter were incorrectly cropped. It wasn’t an error, however. Instagram later acknowledged the move with founder Kevin Systrom stating, “We’ve since launched several improvements to our website that allow users to directly engage with Instagram content through likes, comments, hashtags and now we believe the best experience is for us to link back to where the content lives,” in an email to CNNMoney.
