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:
- This is just a test for research right now.
- This is not a dislike button.
- Your downvotes are visible to you only.
- 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.
