Adding emojis in text messages helps inject a language. They are an alternative way to express nuances. Such signs are very popular during informal talks on social media platforms. Almost all social media platforms provide a wide range of emojis to their users. Microblogging service Twitter has announced that it is exploring emoji reactions just like Facebook’s. Twitter already offers a series of emojis. But it is now testing a new feature to allow users to express their feelings dynamically in Facebook-style emojis. It is currently surveying users about their feelings on developing and incorporating a broader set of emoji reactions. The company said that the new reactions will give more options to users to express themselves during conversations.
The survey by Twitter includes a different set of emojis like laughing face with tears and more. To expressed awesome sentiment, Twitter has proposed including a shocked face. There are some other variations like the hug emoji reaction. Twitter said that users can connect their feelings to the signs and include them in their tweets. It said that new emoji reactions will increase the engagement time with tweets. Notably, Twitter has a strong pool of users in different pockets of the world. The company is working on bringing changes to enhance their experience. After receiving inputs, developers will begin work on a broader set of emoji reactions similar to Facebook.
Social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn offer several emoji reactions. They do not just provide a heart or a simple smiley. While Twitter’s survey is in the early stage, its product team has started working on adding a new dislike button for tweets. This will be an incentive for the users as Twitter explores emoji reactions. The company said that adding a dislike button will open more space for users to express themselves. Besides the unlike button, Twitter will also add a like button. Users can use these buttons to tell others whether they like the message. The company will probably add thumbs up and thumbs down buttons for this.
