The social network Twitter continues to think of new ways to improve the user experience. After thinking about the cancellation of the tweet, the company would now like to introduce new emojis so that users would react to the post.
Following private messages, tweets have responses
Over the years, Twitter has responded to the tweet in three different ways: comment, retweet and like. However, the social network wants to offer more interactions among its users. In January 2020, the company introduced the possibility of a response in the form of emojis to private messages, a feature strongly inspired by Messenger. Today, Jack Dorsey’s platform seeks more inspiration from Facebook by adding new reactions to the tweet.

Relayed by some users, a Twitter poll highlighted several series of emojis to interact with the tweet. The social network will thus think of engaging with various interactions: one face laughing with tears, the other aggressively crying, angry, surprised / surprised, fire emoji, cuddly emoji or Hands up for signal support.
Twitter would also like to introduce a polling system that allows users to show whether they support the tweet posted. The latter would thus be similar to the one offered by Reddit, to highlight publications on its forums.
A big project is underway on Twitter
Week after week, Twitter specifies several of its plans for 2021. To begin with, the social network aims to compete with the club house by launching the Spaces facility in April. Thus audio rooms can be built to give users the opportunity to discuss different topics simultaneously.
Regarding the user experience in general, reflections are on the way to improve YouTube’s integration on news feeds or to display images in and without 4K cropping. Among current, or planned projects by the end of the year, Twitter plans to introduce a redesign of TweetDeck, but also allows the launch of a paid subscription that lets you search for unique content from your favorite users Can.
