Probably, Twitter hopes this feature will help to grow its community like Snapchat and Instagram. The company expected that launch of this QR code functionality will boost users very soon. Twitter also facing a lot of problems to monetize but can’t able as compared to Facebook and Instagram etc. I personally think Snapchat uses this scan code features because there is now way to find users with names that’s why they used scanning features but on the other hand, Twitter already has a wonderful feature to find different users and also give suggestions based on users interest. Therefore, in my opinion, it might not suitable and handy for twitter as 2nd most widely used social media around the world.
