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,, TweetDeck and Twitter for Windows10.

Many Twitter users feel conflicted about this change.

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?
