Twitter will soon let you react, downvote tweets suggest screenshots of the app

Twitter is reportedly preparing new features, including reactions, downvotes, and sorted replies for iOS users.

STRONG POINTS

  • The reaction feature had still been under testing for a few months now and should finally launch.
  • Twitter is now able to store data on the negative vote feature, which is another indicator that this feature will be released sooner rather than later.
  • Twitter users will receive responses from people they follow and other responses that are likely to be of interest to them.

After unveiling several features this year, the microblogging site Twitter is reportedly brewing new features, including reactions, downvotes, and sorted responses for iOS users.

Twitter is getting busier this year as the company rolls out new features before the end of the year, according to a 9to5Mac report. To add to this, the business should have a lot of other hidden surprises for people.

Reverse engineer Nima Owji said users may be getting closer to the release date for Twitter’s reactions. The reactions feature had still been under testing for a few months now, and should finally launch soon, as Owji saw some references to the new feature in Twitter’s code.

With four new reactions, “Tears of Joy”, “Thinking Face”, “Clapping Hands” and “Crying Face”, this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how the conversations make them feel and to give them “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received.”

Not only that, but Nima also said that Twitter is now able to store data on the negative vote feature, which is another indicator that this feature will be released sooner rather than later. Nima Owji also notes that the company has also changed the negative voting position, so that it will appear before the Like button.

The report also notes that the company also changed the negative voting position. He even added a new tab explaining how negative votes work.

Twitter users will receive responses from people they follow and other responses that are likely to be of interest to them. Another option is for users to get all the answers, including those that might be harmful or even offensive.

Twitter even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work:

  • Tap to Vote Down: See an answer that doesn’t seem relevant to the conversation? Let us know by voting down;
  • Negative votes are private: your votes are not public and will not be shared with the Tweet author or other people on the timeline;
  • Help Make Twitter Better: Your feedback helps us prioritize better content for you and everyone on Twitter.

This month, the company rolled out its in-app tip feature to all Android users over the age of 18, after iOS launched in September. Twitter said the “Tips” feature is for users looking to get some financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo, and Patreon directly through the app.
