Twitter (TWTR) is reportedly testing out a new product to make posting pictures more appealing.

It’s called “Stickers” and it lets users add certain images to their photos before posting them, similar to Snapchat or Facebook, Re/code reports. What’s different about Twitter’s feature is that it will also be able to suggest other pictures for you to alter to encourage users to “participate in trending conversations and breaking news” and even show you “how other users from around the world have edited the same photo.”

“We’re always researching potential new ways to make Twitter more expressive,” a spokesperson told Re/code. The feature is currently being tested by a handful of Twitter users.

It’s uncertain whether the product will actually make it onto the official website and, if it does, it may be called something different. “Stickers” isn’t the official name, it’s just one of various options. Others include “Taptags,” “#stamps,” and “Remix.”

Twitter celebrated its 10th birthday this month, and some are questioning whether it will be able to survive another 10 years at it faces slow user growth among other issues.
