For now, no stickers, filters, light enhancements or other creative tools have been added on the Twitter Camera app and it remains unclear whether or not would such features would be included on the micro-blogging site's camera.
"Even though Twitter says it's not giving Twitter Camera tweets an algorithmic boost in the main timeline, a spokesperson told that its combined 'Human and Technology Curation' team may seek to spotlight Twitter Camera tweets in the 'Whats Happening' section. We'll see if media organisations and brands try to take advantage and stand out in the Feeds," the report added.
Twitter has not specified by when would the redesigned camera feature reach all users globally.
