No more “likes”?

Last week during one of the company’s events, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that they are getting rid of this button, explaining that he was not a fan of “likes” and would soon kill off them.

Twitter Vice President of Communications Brandon Borrman emphasized that the company has not yet determined when they will be able to turn off “like” button. Perhaps this will not happen so soon.

Recall that Twitter introduced “likes” in early November 2015, replacing “favorites” with “likes”, and the icon from the star to the heart. By clicking on this button, the tweet will be transferred to the category of “favorites” of a particular user.

Previously, the social network used star-shaped ‘favorites’ button that performed the same function. The company decided that the “heart” is a universal symbol, understandable to the people of each culture. Twitter reported that it conducted tests to find out which of the “like” buttons appealed to most users.

Users received the news controversially. Many of them were dissatisfied with the replacement, because they believed that the likes make Twitter look like Facebook and other social networks. However, the news about removing the button was received controversially too.
