The micro-blogging platform Twitter is reportedly preparing to introduce several new features for iOS users, including reactions, downvotes, and sorted replies in the coming days. According to reverse engineer Nima Owji, the users could be getting close to the release date of Twitter Reactions.
The feature is aimed at letting users better express how conversations make them feel and to give them a better understanding of how their Tweets are received by followers. The Twitter Reactions will have four emojis, including “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands,” and “weeping face.”
Twitter has already added a new tab explaining how the downvotes feature works, which includes:
- Tap to downvote: See a reply that doesn’t seem relevant to the conversation? Let us know by downvoting;
- Downvotes are private: Your votes aren’t public and won’t be shared with the Tweet author or others on the timeline;
- Help make Twitter better: Your feedback helps us prioritize higher quality content for you and everyone on Twitter.
Furthermore, the social media giant’s sorted replies will enable users to only get replies from people they follow and other replies that would most likely be interesting to them while filtering out replies that could be harmful.
It bears mentioning that Twitter has already rolled out its in-app tipping feature to Android users as well after launch of the feature on the iOS platform. The feature helps users receive donations from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo, and Patreon directly through the app.
