With four new reactions, “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands” and “crying face,” this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how conversations make them feel and to give users “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received.
Reverse engineer Nima Owji said that users could be getting close to the release date of Twitter’s Reactions. The reactions feature was still being tested out for a couple of months now and is finally set to launch soon as Owji saw certain references to the new feature in Twitter’s code.
Not only that but Nima also said that Twitter is now able to store data about the downvotes feature, which is another indicator that this function will be released sooner rather than later. Nima Owji also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well, so it will appear before the like button.
Twitter users will get replies coming from people they follow and other replies that would most likely be interesting to them. Another option is for users to get all replies, including those that could be harmful, or even offensive.
The report also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well. It has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work.
Twitter has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work:
Tap to downvote: See a reply that doesn’t seem relevant to the conversation? Let us know by downvoting;
Downvotes are private: Your votes aren’t public and won’t be shared with the Tweet author or others on the timeline;
Help make Twitter better: Your feedback helps us prioritise higher quality content for you and everyone on Twitter. This month, the company has rolled out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September. Twitter said the “Tips” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo, and Patreon directly through the app.
