Instagram 3.2 – Improved Camera with a New Filter | Instagram blog

Twitter photos: Put a filter on it | Twitter blog

Starting today, you’ll be able to edit and refine your photos, right from Twitter. The latest versions of Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android introduce a few new ways to enhance the images you tweet.

Yep, the fight for our attention is certainly on. Twitter had 500 million users in June. Instagram had 100 million users in September.

A few observations:

— Most of my friends in tech or media use twitter. They use Instagram as well.

— None of my “normal” friends use Twitter. Many of those with smartphones are using Instagram.

— Everybody except maybe one use Facebook. Use may be a strong word, but they at least have an account.

One more thing: This “war” once again demonstrates the current big weakness of Windows Phone. More like Windows Who? if you ask Twitter or Instagram.
