Although Instagram became popular thanks Twitter, both networks after the acquisition by Facebook also become direct competitors of each other. Earlier today released Facebook have an interesting update for Instagram application with an improved camera, Foursquare integration and the new Willow black and white filter.
The popular Facebook / Instagram network will compete tonight however, because Twitter has just released a update for iOS and Android application, and the main change is undoubtedly the ability to capture filters. The new filters are created with the Aviary SDK and users can choose from eight different filters: Vignette, Black & White, Warm, Cool, Vintage, Cinematic, Happy and gritty. Selecting a filter is very simple and to swipe through the list a choice can be made between the different filters, it is also thanks to the live preview feature also possible first to see the result.
In the field of filters, options and settings is the Twitter application actually not much different than Instagram or other similar services. Do you not have to set everything manually then there is also the possibility to automatically improve your photos. In my eyes, the addition of filters a step in the right direction for the social network: users can now take your picture and then edit them directly tweet, therefore you no longer use external applications like Instagram. In the following video to see more about the new possibilities with the Twitter application.
According to The Next Web Twitter has started the development of filters after it became clear that Instagram would be taken over by Facebook. The struggle between the two is in any event unrelated cracked now revealed that Instagram has removed support for Twitter. To Instagram photos will now be seen through Twitter’s website should be visited instead of having them in the Twitter application are shown.
The Twitter update is now available for download in the App Store.
