Leaked new Twitter feature suggests Tweet Reactions are coming
Soon after, Twitter joined other social media sites in labeling misleading COVID-19 information, and adding links to each coronavirus-related Tweet, leading to trusted sources on the matter.
Reacting to tweets may be coming
And now, according to Jane Manchun Wong, who is known for uncovering social media features before launch, Twitter is working on Tweet Reactions. More specifically, a new feature that would allow users to react to tweets with an emoji, similarly to how one can react to Facebook posts on that social media platform.
Instead of replying to a tweet in a conventional way, the leak suggests that users will additionally be able to access a selection of reaction emojis and reply with one of them. Normally, reaction emojis include laughter, crying, thumbs up and heart, among others.
