03 Nov Twitter Replaces Favorites with Likes!
I noticed the Twitter “favorite” feature hadn’t really been working the past few days, and I finally know why. Twitter was busy turning the little yellow “Favorite” star button into a red heart button now called “like”!
A post on the Twitter blog describes the Twitter heart button as easier to understand to newcomers than the concept of “favoriting” a tweet, and success with the like hearts on Periscope brought it to Twitter and Vine
What do you think of the new Twitter heart?
