Twitter rolls out new photo filters in its official iOS app

December 2, 2014

Twitter is continuing to fine-tune its official iOS app. The social networking company just announced that it is rolling out new photo filters to all iPhone users.

Along with some new ways to tweak images, users should be able to quickly and easily swipe through the different filters thanks to a revamped layout. All filters are now presented at the bottom of the image page, much like what is found on Instagram.

No update is necessary to take advantage of the new filters. After selecting an image to tweet, you can find the filters by tapping the photo thumbnail.

Twitter is also taking steps to improve how users can report harassment and block other users.

Here’s a quick video that shows the new process.

A new blocked accounts page will also be available to access from Twitter’s site.

Those updates are available now for a small group of users and will roll out to everyone in the coming weeks.

The official Twitter app, which is universal for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, can be downloaded now from the App Store for free.
