Hearts trump stars on Twitter


Twitter has made numerous small changes to their platform over the last couple of months, including removing the 140 character limit from direct messages and introducing a new poll feature.

The latest change is swapping a star icon for favourites to a heart one for likes. Personally I’ve been using the favourite star icon to ‘like’ a tweet for a long time. I haven’t ‘saved’ a tweet by favouriting it in years (I tend to use other services like Evernote to do that) and used to click the star in the same way I click ‘like’ on Facebook.

What are your thoughts on this latest change?
