Micro-blogging platform Twitter is reportedly working on a Facebook-like tweet reactions view that includes adding some new emojis.
According to researcher Jane Manchun Wong, alongside the “Like” button, Twitter is also working on “Cheer,” “Hmm,” “Sad,” and “Haha” reactions.
It’s still unclear when the platform will release this feature and how it will be implemented, 9To5Mac reported.
One of the concerns is about using these reactions to spread hate on the platform since for now, it’s only possible to retweet and like a tweet, the report said.

Currently, only “Hmm” and “Haha” reactions have a proper emoji. “Cheer” and “Sad” have the same generic heart emoji of the “Like” button.
As reported by Wong, it’s been at least a couple of weeks since Twitter pre-eminently started to work on this feature.
Recently, Twitter paused its blue badge verification program within a week of its launch, saying it is now rolling in verifications requests that have reached it.
Twitter relaunched its new verification application process last week, beginning with six categories and reviewing public applications globally to help users earn the blue badge on the micro-blogging platform.
Twitter previously suspended the verification way back in 2017 before relaunching it this year.
The company relaunched the verification program with six categories — government; companies, brands and organizations; news organisations and journalists; entertainment; sports and gaming; and activists, organisers and other influential individuals.
