Twitter’s introducing QR codes to make following friends easier

Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Twitter all have one thing in common; QR Codes.

In a silent move, Twitter rolled out QR codes to user profiles. The QR Codes let you quickly follow other Twitter users, similar to how Snapchat lets you add friends by scanning a QR code.

Twitter rolled out other features today to stave off trolls and allow users to filter content in their timeline. Having QR codes added in could be a way Twitter hopes you’ll start adding more people you meet IRL and create constructive conversations. The addition of QR codes could be a small test amongst users or a larger rollout. Either way, Twitter’s trying to add value and fix the troll issue on their struggling service.
