Hipster News: Photo Filters coming to Twitter
Smartphones have introduced photography to millions (if not billions) of more people. This is a double-edged sword, it can get more people interested in learning about photography but it can also cause a stampede of proudly misinformed neo-photographers distorting expectations and qualifications of and from more serious photographers. "I paid you to shoot my wedding and not a single HDR picture? Not a single Instagram filter? I should of (sic) had my nephew shoot it for free with his iPhone 3GS! He's a whiz with Instagram!" ;-)
With that as a quasi-unnecessary preface, photo filters are coming to Twitter. Instagram and a number of other photo apps have made them popular, so the Twitter is jumping on the bandwagon. From a non-photographer digital user perspective, this offers some more flexibility, since you can hipsterize pictures from multiple sources, old and new, not just the ones you recently took.
