TWITTER TO REPLACE FAVOURITE STARS WITH HEARTS

By

Twitter today announced on its blog that it would be changing the star icon to a heart. The star icons which stood for favourites would now be a heart which stands for likes.

Twitter believes that the heart will make it easier for newcomers to understand since the "heart a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it."

Twitter users will begin to see the hearts on their TL on Twitter Web, Twitter apps for Android, iOS and Windows 10, TweetDeck.
