The new touch ups, according to Twitter’s blog post, include:

• Filters – apply one of eight filters, ranging from black & white to vintage, to add a new look and feel to your photos

• Take a bird’s-eye view – see how each filter would affect your photo in a single grid view, or swipe through looks to compare your options
• Frame the action – crop and pinch to zoom in order to focus attention
• Auto-enhance – make your photos pop with balanced light and colors by tapping the wand
