Twitter gave us an update today and it came with a pretty major feature. The ‘Favorites’ section of Twitter is gone and has been replaced with ‘Likes’ that are similar to Instagram. We now have hearts instead of stars as well. Twitter made this change in hopes of being more universal saying that a heart is, “a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones,” the post continues. “(I)n our tests, we found that people loved it.”
Feedback was immediate as everybody chimed in on their take on the new update. Some people loved it but as you know there’s always room for slander. People lashed out on Twitter and many people demanded their stars & favorites back.
What do you think of the new update? Is Twitter moving in a better direction?
