Last week, Facebook took Instagram preview support away from Twitter, and Twitter obviously was pretty prepared for that. Today you can download an update for Twitter that gives you a list of Instagram-like options with which to tweet till your heart's content. Yay?
"What's New in Version 5.2
Create beautiful photos right within Twitter, with filters powered by Aviary.
- Apply one of eight different filters to instantly add a new look and feel to your photos
- Choose a filter by comparing all your options in a convenient grid view or by swiping through each version
- Make your photos pop with balanced light and colors by tapping the auto-enhance wand
- Crop and scale to frame the action the way you want
We’ve also added many other improvements and fixes to this update."
It's not that I don't get it. I do. I understand why they did this, but at the same time I'm irritated. I don't need everything I touch that has the ability to accept photos to have a way to add digital filters. I just don't. Will I use this update? Probably. Will it make me happy? No.
