Twitter has announced that they are changing the star for favorites to a heart on November 3rd.
And it looks like it’s here to stay.
Twitter says the reason for the change is,
“The heart is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones.
And in our tests, we found that people loved it.”
Also, along with the change to a heart, they are changing “favorites” to “likes”.
This change will affect Twitter for iOS and Android, twitter.com, TweetDeck and Twitter for Windows10.
There is a new heart for Twitter and Vine. We have changed it to a heart so that it can express a wider range of emotions than the former star.
Many Twitter users feel conflicted about this change.
The Chinese flag would be like this.
The American flag would change like this, too.
I’m angry about this.
Some users supported this change, saying that “Hearts are cuter than stars”
But some users were reluctant because they felt that “Twitter is becoming like Facebook”.
How do you feel about this change?
