Twitter's searchable stickers can add pizzazz to your photos

Throw some sunglasses on your dog or dress up your snaps of food.

Post a lot of photos to Twitter but feel like they're lacking something? Twitter's changing that with today's announcement of #Stickers, which will let you spice up your pictures with props, emoji and more.

Soon, you'll be able to pick and choose various "stickers" you can place on photos you upload to the service. Whether you're showing your support for a cause or need to dress up your family pet, you'll likely want more engagements with each tweet, and stickers look like an interesting way to do it.

When you tweet out a photo that utilizes stickers, your photo will become searchable via hashtag. This will allow users to search specific sticker hashtags to see how other Twitter denizens used certain stickers for effect on their own timelines.

Twitter spent some time testing these photo augments some time ago, but the company has officially adopted the feature and will be rolling it out over the next few weeks for anyone using Twitter on iOS and Android.
