Twitter Is Testing Emoji Tweet Reactions


Twitter is developing a new feature that will let users react to tweets with emoji, according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong.

A screenshot posted by Wong shows a tweet-reaction interface, giving the option to respond to a tweet with emoji including the crying with laughter and shocked faces.

There’s also the option to “React with Fleet,” a reference to Twitter’s new feature called Fleets, this is its new own version of stories, alongside the typical “Retweet” and “Retweet with comment” options.


The popular social media platform has recently been introducing a lot of features in a bid to ‘repolish’ the app, here are some of the most significant changes so far.

Twitter also announced that it will begin testing a new feature that will prompt users to think before they tweet articles they haven’t read. This test is currently limited to Android users in English. If a user decides to retweet an article before reading it, Twitter may prompt them to open it before they do so.
