Twitter tests people about their thoughts on Facebook-style emoji responses
Since their introduction, the way people communicate with social media sites has changed several times, mostly as a result of some fine-tuning of the user interface, and one such notable example is the response.
A Twitter spokesperson tells that ,“We’re exploring additional ways for people to express themselves in conversations happening on Twitter.” The spokesperson stresses that Twitter’s research is already in its early stages and that the emojis will exist alongside, rather than in place of, the existing “heart” button.
The survey included several sets of these reactions, and participants were asked to choose which set they favored. Five of the seven suggested reactions – like, funny, Interesting, unhappy, and amazing stayed constant throughout the sets and used widely related emojis.
