Twitter first introduced filters to its official app two years ago in December, now it’s time to actually make theм work well (the whole thing was a knee-jerk response to a soured relationship with Instagram).
The official apps for Android and iOS (which are rolling out today) abandon the 3×3 grid display for filters for a more traditional approach.
The tiny thumbnails didn’t offer much detail in how the filter will affect the photo, so instead a large preview will be shown, with a list of filters below. Each filter can be double-tapped to reveal a slider that adjusts the strength of the effect.
The whole thing looks very much like Instagram now (iOS and Android screenshots above).
