Over the next few weeks, Twitter will roll out its newest feature: #Stickers. Similar to Snapchat’s function that allows users to add drawings or symbols to images, #Stickers will let users do the same on photos they tweet.

Users will get to pick from hundreds of emojis, objects and accessories to stick on their photos. They will also have the option to resize and rotate the stickers, place them anywhere on their photo and to use an unlimited number of stickers.

“We’re excited to introduce #Stickers, a fun new way to add creativity to your photos and connect them to the world on Twitter,” wrote Sasank Reddy, Twitter’s senior product manager, on the company blog.

The stickers serve a secondary purpose as well: they allow photos to become searchable by becoming a “visual spin on the hashtag.” Users can search specific stickers, similar to how they can search through hashtags. By tapping on a sticker in the photo, a new feed will pop up showing all photos using that very sticker.

“You can browse our rotating sets of stickers to join in on real-time conversations, and select from the library of hundreds of accessories, emoji, and props to make your photos more fun,” wrote Reddy. “Use them to share what you’re doing or how you’re feeling, to show support for a cause, or to just add some flair.”

#Stickers is just one of many changes Twitter has unveiled this year. Earlier this year, the microblogging platform announced it would modify its 140-character limits for tweets by not counting @names in replies and media attachments. “You can already do a lot in a Tweet, but we want you to be able to do even more. In the coming months we’ll make changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters,” wrote Todd Sherman, Twitter’s senior product manager, on the company blog.
