As per a report by The Verge, Twitter is exploring the idea of surveying a group of people for the same. As part of it, a set of reactions will be presented to the group to see how they react to it. Also Read – Twitter users can now have multiple security keys for logging into their account

People involved in the survey will be shown various combinations of the reactions such a funny, interesting, awesome, support, and more. Most of the reactions will imitate the ones seen on Facebook: a love reaction, followed by sad, angry, amused, and more.

As per a tweet that hints at the inclusion of the feature, there are mainly two sets of reactions. One would include Funny, Interesting, Sad, Awesome, Support, and Angry. The other set would include the same reactions, except, the Awesome reaction is represented by the fire emoji instead of the wow emoji. Whatever combination it is, it will be in addition to the like, which is a primary reaction as of now.

In addition to this, Twitter might also add the option to dislike or “downvote” a tweet, for which it is also surveying people.

Facebook becomes the one being copied!

If Twitter includes the functionality, it will be the one copying Facebook, which already has this feature. Even LinkedIn has the ability to react to posts via emojis.

However, Twitter isn’t completely devoid of the feature: It allows people to react to messages over Direct Messages (DMs).

It would be interesting to see how the reactions on Twitter help people become more expressive. However, we don’t know when it will be introduced. Hence, stay tuned to know more about it.
