Twitter Launched Its Own “Instagram” App
Twitter has released their own photo filter app; just one week after they announced to “ban” Instagram photos from their site. The app is at the moment only available for Android devices and soon will be released for iOS users.
The Twitter photo app offers basically similar filters to what Instagram has (even less), such as vignette, black and white, hot, cold, vintage, cinematic, happy, and gritty. Next to those filters, the app also has options to crop and auto-adjust, as well as a helpful grid view which lets users see what each filter will look like at once.

The filters in this app were designed for Twitter by photo-editing service Aviary, which also handles Flickr and Twitpic.
It is obvious that the launch of the app is Twitter’s way to declare war against Instagram after the mobile photo app betrayed the microblogging by partnering with Facebook in April 2012. In July 2012, Twitter took the first step to break the relationship by not allowing Instagram users to find friends through their site. On Monday, Twitter completely ended its support for Instagram by disabling the preview of insta-images and instead only giving a link that direct users to Instagram website.
