In what might be considered another anti-Instagram move from Twitter, the company is rolling out new photo filter options on its mobile apps for iOS and Android.
The company didn't make a huge announcement about it, but mentioned it in a tweet from its Twitter Mobile account (via TNW):
We're rolling out new filters to spice up your photos. Download the latest Twitter for iPhone or Android to enjoy. pic.twitter.com/XRCIszOgID

To use the filters, simply tap on an image's thumbnail after you add it to the tweet, and you'll be able to swipe through options like: Vignette, Warm, Cool, 1963, 1972, Golden Hour, Antique, and Black & White. You can also crop with wide or square options from here.
The filters may not quite stack up to Instagram's, but in most cases, they'll probably be adequate, particularly for adding that vintage look.
Also this week, Twitter announced some improvements to harassment reporting and account blocking. More on that here.
