Facebook-like reactions soon?

Several weeks ago, Twitter announced that it wanted to explore additional ways for customers to express themselves more in conversations. Thus he can integrate new emoji to complete his like button…

According to application researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter can deliver a number of Facebook-like emoji reactions in addition to heart-shaped “likes”. The social network may add emoji of “clap”, “hmm” (doubt), “sad” and “haha”.

Similar reactions have been pouring in on Facebook since 2016. But leaks unveiled by Jane Manchun Wong suggest that Twitter may be taking a slightly different route when it comes to the mood it wants users to express. While Facebook can have expressions of laughter and sadness, the social network can also include a suggestive and enjoyable alternative.

These specific reactions were chosen based on usage of the platform, with Twitter’s research showing the “laughing and crying” and “crying face” emoji were the most used in tweets in 2020.

It doesn’t seem to have an “angry” expression like Facebook does, probably because this aspect is already handled by the reply and quote functions of tweets.

Back in March, Twitter asked users about the ability to add a wider set of emoji-style reactions to Tweets, giving people more ways to quickly engage with the app. It may also include some sort of positive and negative vote with “agree” and “disagree” arrows.

Last I heard, Twitter has been testing tweet responses in Turkey for a limited time since September.

Users in the region will be able to react to tweets using “Face with Tears of Joy”, “Passive Face”, “Applause”, “Crying Face” or a simple “Heart”. I , I , IAnd I, In addition to this ,

Twitter explains that it decided not to select these negative emoji because respondents said “they were concerned about receiving negative feedback on some of their thoughts.”

In a press release, Twitter said: “While ‘frustration’ and ‘anger’ are also common emotions that people experience when reading Tweets, and some people wish to disagree with Tweets, we do not include them as emoji reactions to Tweets. Moment (. ..). Our goal has always been to have a healthy public conversation and we want to see how our current set of emoji will impact conversation.”

Specifically, Twitter said the responses would help people better show their emotions in conversations “while also helping tweeters understand how their tweets are being received.”

The idea behind the feature is to give more ways to show people what they think of a tweet, Twitter says, while providing authors with better feedback on how their tweets were received. The emoji can be accessed via a long press on the Like button, while a short press will send a normal Like.

The trial will be available on iOS, Android and the web. However, he added that “based on this trial, we can expand the availability of feedback experience to other areas.”
