Twitter is testing upvote and downvote buttons on tweets

Must read

Social networking platform Twitter has recently confirmed that it is working on a new upvote and downvote reaction feature for tweets.

According to Twitter, as of now, this feature is testing with a small group of users on iOS.

Twitter mentions that iOS users will see upvotes and downvotes in different styles and the company is testing the feature to “understand the types of replies you find relevant in a convo, so we can work on ways to show more of them.” This new feature is still in the testing phase and is not available for all users.

Revealing about the feature, the company tweeted, “Some of you on iOS may see different options to up or down vote on replies. We’re testing this to understand the types of replies you find relevant in a convo, so we can work on ways to show more of them. Your downvotes aren’t public, while your upvotes will be shown as likes.”

However, Twitter has not made it clear as to when the feature will be rolled out and if it will be a temporary or permanent feature. Twitter also says that presently this feature will not impact the order of tweets.

Last week, Twitter introduced the ability to add captions in voice tweets. The feature enables users to record a snippet of audio that can be included in a tweet. The feature is presently available only on iOS and it supports English, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, French, Indonesian, Korean and Italian languages.
