Twitter is planning to remove the Like button

Twitter планирует удалить кнопку LikeThis button was added to Twitter in 2015 as a replacement for the previous button “favorites”.

The founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey admitted that will get rid of the buttons in the shape of a heart “soon”.

Dorsey said he “has never been a fan of buttons in the shape of a heart.”

In March 2018, Twitter has provided the bookmark function, which allows users to confidentially save tweets without clicking the Like button, which means not only a positive attitude to the content of the tweet, but also post.

“The potential removal of these buttons is part of the efforts to create a more healthy atmosphere for debate on the platform”, – noted journalists. Dorsey himself has hinted at his dissatisfaction with a similar function at the beginning of this month, at the summit WIRED25.

“We have a big button with a heart, and we encourage people to want to make it grow. Is it right? Especially in comparison with what we can contribute to a healthy conversation?”, asked Dorsey.

At the same time, Twitter users were very surprised by the attitude Dorsey to the Like button. Many users noted that the service has a much more serious problem, and that changing the basic functionality would be a wrong start for the improvement of the platform.

This button was added to Twitter in 2015 as a replacement for the previous button “favorites” that was in the shape of a star.
