Twitter testing internal “dislike” button for tweet replies

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

Twitter appears to be testing a new “dislike” or thumbs down button for tweets, which is designed to let people downvote replies. Twitter says that the feature is available for “some” iOS users.

A dislike button? Hmmm. From Twitter support:

  1. This is just a test for research right now.
  2. This is not a dislike button.
  3. Your downvotes are visible to you only.
  4. Votes won’t change the order of replies.

Interesting that Twitter specifically calls out that this is not really a dislike button. Feels like the Twitter team trying this out in a non-public way to get their heads around dislike behavior.
