What we like a filter. Especially the more vintage. Blurred shapes and saturated colors of the images got on internet to make them look old photographs, conceal blemishes, enhance feelings and turn a snapshot into a portrait soda even nostalgic, with a certain charm. Most affectionately we thank them Instagram , the photo application filter of choice for iPhone and Android . Since its logo-a simple camera unveiled its old-key, so retro, so excited condition that his followers that social network soon became one of the most popular currently integrating with Facebook and Twitter .

Or both. A process in which Twitter, ambitious, has decided to skip the middleman and incorporate directly applying filters to manipulate your photos.
