Twitter is developing emoji reactions to tweets that are similar to those found on Facebook. Jane Manchun Wong, a reverse engineering expert, went to Twitter to publish a screenshot of new emoticons and said that Twitter might add reactions like Likes, Cheer, Hmm, Sad, and Haha.

The emoji reactions are still in progress, and some of them, like Cheer and Sad, were revealed in the screenshot to have used a placeholder Heart emoji.

Emoji Reaction

Twitter will show the various tweet reactions, as well as the number of reactions given, according to the leaks. The new feature is expected to work in the same way as Facebook’s emoticons work for a post and comment. Furthermore, the microblogging platform is planning to show who reacted toward which emoji.

It’s worth noting that Twitter gave us a sneak peek of this emoji reaction feature back in March 2021 when it ran a survey. It also stated a dislike/downvote button, but there is just no indication of that now. The new feature will just be added to twitter’s existing heart icon.

With the addition of emoji reactions, Twitter may begin to resemble Facebook. However, this is no confirmation when will this new feature be available on the platform.

Twitter Spaces

Spaces, Twitter’s live audio conversations application, is now accessible on desktop and mobile web browsers, according to the company. Twitter Spaces, a Clubhouse-style audio application, was previously exclusively available as an iOS and Android app.

“Spaces are making their way to Twitter for web! Now you can join a Space to listen in, test out the new transcription design, and set reminders to join a scheduled Space,” The micro-blogging platform said in a tweet.

As per Twitter, all Spaces, like Tweets, are ‘public,’ meaning that anybody can access them. They would appear at the top of your Home page where Fleets are displayed, and also every space will have a link that may be shared publicly. This also means that anybody on Twitter can become a Listener in any place.
