(Pocket-lint) – Twitter takes a page from Reddit’s playbook, testing a new negative and positive vote reaction system for tweets.
“Some of you on iOS may see different options for voting up or down on responses. We’re testing this to understand what types of responses you find relevant in a conversation, so we can work on ways to show them off. more “, Twitter announcement in a tweet on July 21, 2021. In another tweet, the company clarified that this is currently a research test and your up or down votes will not change the order of responses.
Keep in mind that Reddit has long offered up and down votes, but its system is a way to order subreddit replies, replies, and posts. Twitter, however, makes it clear that its up and down votes work differently in the test. He said negative votes are not a disgust button and are currently not public (they are only visible to you), but your upvotes on tweets will be shown to others as likes.
Twitter is testing the feature with a small group of users on iOS. These users may also see different styles, such as up and down arrows, heart icon and down arrow, or thumbs up and down icons. He didn’t say if he planned to make voting an official feature or how that would affect your Twitter feed.

It should be noted that Twitter has been extremely transparent in recent months about its upcoming projects, whether it be new features going on or even considering subscription options. Just yesterday he announced a redesign of TweetDeck – something you can now test with a simple browser hack.
