Twitter Announces Built-In Photo Editing for iOS App

Hot on the heels of Instagram's new update, Twitter officially announced the release of an update to its own iOS and Android apps, adding photo editing functionality and built-in filters.
Starting today, you'll be able to edit and refine your photos, right from Twitter. The latest versions of Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android introduce a few new ways to enhance the images you tweet. We're grateful to our partner, Aviary, for powering our filters and effects.
Twitter's photo editing capabilities include auto enhance, cropping and pinch to zoom, and an array of eight different filters.

Filters include Vignette, Black and White, Warm, Cool, Vintage, Cinematic, Happy, and Gritty.

Twitter and Instagram have become increasingly competitive when it comes to photo real estate, especially following the Facebook purchase of Instagram. Recently, Instagram officially shut off Twitter cards in an effort to direct Twitter users to its own website for viewing photos.

The change disallows Instagram photos from expanding in Twitter feeds, and instead, pictures from Instagram now show up as links. Photos edited with the updated Twitter app, however, will show up directly in user feeds.

Aviary, which is the photo editing SDK behind Twitter's new photo filters, is also used by Flickr, Yahoo, Box, Squarespace, and Walgreens.

The updated Twitter for iOS is available on the App Store. [Direct Link]
