Twitter is adding stickers to its short-lived, Snapchat story-like Fleets, the social media company announced on WednesdayStickers are available to users on both Android and iOS.
When creating a fleet, you can add stickers by tapping the smiley icon on the bottom row of your screen. When you do, you’ll see a collection of Twitter-created animated stickers and emojis (the latter of which Twitter calls ‘Twemoji’). And if you search for something in the search bar at the top of the screen, Twitter will fetch GIFs from Tenor and Giphy, owned by Facebook.
Your fleets have just been upgraded.

If you’ve ever used stickers on Snapchat or Instagram, this new feature should feel pretty familiar to you. That said, the feature may feel so familiar because both Snapchat and Instagram have been offering it for years. But Twitter is still in its infancy with Fleets, which only became available to everyone in November, so maybe stickers are just a first sign of more additions to come.
