Twitter has secretly been testing reaction emojis on people’s timelines which is a substantial upgrade from the current “heart” tweets in public. The feature is more or less like Facebook’s take only it works completely different from the one’s implemented on the rival network. Reaction emojis will give users variations in showing their feelings on public tweets which provides them with a proper response as well on how they actually feel about tweets.
According to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, wo’s been credited with cracking apps open to discover upcoming or features that are hidden within the application, the social platform has introduced an experimental panel of emojis that lets you choose from different reactions to a tweet. The panel is located right next to the Retweet and Retweet with Comment buttons.
Even though Facebook has graciously availed a similar feature to its users for a while, Wong discovered twitters’ version isn’t an exact replica. Though we’re still not 100 percent sure the feature will be unveiled as is as the social network could decide to rework it further before mass rollout.
From the images posted by Wong, there could be an option to React with Fleet, its Stories-like tweets that disappear after 24 hours. Twitter has been testing Fleets over the past months and found that it’s been seeing less instances of abuse when the disappearing messages are concerned.
