Goodbye to ‘Favorite’ on Twitter and Welcome to ‘Likes’

Goodbye to ‘Favorite’ on Twitter and Welcome to ‘Likes’

The buzz on twitter retiring the favorite feature and introducing the
like feature instead isn't new. It's actually been ongoing for a while
now and thankfully, Twitterjust made it official. You can no longer
favorite tweets. Instead, you can now LIKE tweets which seems much

If you rush now to twitter to validate this report and not find a like
button, sorry pal, the like feature on twitter is represented with a
love symbol and not the usual thumbs up button you'd expect to see.

According to twitter in a blog postintroducing the new like feature:
We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we'll be
calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding
to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing,
especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not
everything can be your favorite.

The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across
languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive,
enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with
people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it.

You can say a lot with a heart. Introducing a new way to show how you
feel on Twitter: e0rDTP

The new love symbol which signifies like on Twitter is also live on
Twitter for iOS and android,, tweetdeck, twitter for
windows 10 and across every tweet on the internet as well as Vine
android app and website. It isn't yet available on Vine for iOS and
twitter for MAC but twitter says it will be coming very soon.
