Twitter Fleets, the Stories-like feature launched by the platform in November, is adding sticker support. Using stickers in Fleets should feel quite familiar if you’ve regularly interacted with Stories on Instagram and even Snapchat.
To add stickers to your Fleets, tap the smiley face icon(located at the bottom of your screen). You’ll see various options available, including premade stickers and animations by Twitter(appropriately named “Twemojis”). You can still search for more using the available search bar that pulls stickers from popular GIF sites, Tenor and Giphy.
The new feature is available on Android and iOS, so make sure you update your app to the latest version. Twitter announced the news today, and so it might be sometime before you’re able to get the update on your device.
Regular Snapchat and Instagram users should feel right at home with the new feature.
Upcoming Twitter Features
Twitter is also working on a couple of features that we should see added to the social platform in the future. Most recently, Twitter has been spotted testing Facebook-style emoji reactions. The social media platform is also working to enable users to watch YouTube videos directly without leaving the site.
Another upcoming feature is support for 4K image uploads on mobile – Android and iOS – and a dynamic image preview on the timeline.
