The social network for photographs has been a huge hit since its launch. While Twitter was vying to acquire it in the past however the much prominent Facebook beat Twitter at acquiring Instagram which would have been a perfect blend with Twitter’s photo Tweets feature.
To cope up with this Twitter just recently launched its own photo editing and filtering app for its iOS and Android apps. It operates very similar to Instagram and allows users to do basic editing like cropping and auto-enhancement. Users can then choose a bunch of filters to be applied over these images before you Tweet them.

Every filter has its live preview and Twitter has partnered with Aviary for the filters and effects available with this update.

This new update will be a strong competitor to Instagram as it blends quite well with what Twitter already has to offer. Also, Instagram recently withdrew support for Twitter and it is hence likely to become one of the key features of the micro-blogging/social networking platform.
