Twitter is adding stickers to its volatile, Snapchat Stories-like Fleets, the social media company announced Wednesday. Stickers are available for users on both Android and iOS.
When creating a raft, you can add stickers by tapping the smiley icon at the bottom of the screen. As you do so, you’ll see a collection of Twitter-made animated stickers and emoji (the latter of which Twitter calls “Twemoji”). And if you search for something in the search box at the top of the screen, Twitter will pull up GIFs taken from Tenor and Facebook-owned Giphy.
Your fleets have just received an upgrade.

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 early days with the Fleets, which only became available to everyone back in November, so maybe stickers are just a first sign that more additions are coming.
