Twitter has introduced the “dislike” button feature to get feedbacks on the desirability of the function.
The micro blogging social media platform announced the commencement of the trial via their official page.
The App noted that the feature will only be available on iOS systems.
However, Twitter specifically noted that unlike other social media platforms, the number of dislikes on a tweet will only be seen by the author of the tweet.
The purpose of this new feature, according to the platform, is to emphasize on promoting replies that the tweet author finds “relevant” to the conversation.
This test is presently being conducted on a few selected Twitter users. Twitter did not specify the duration of the test and when the dislike button will be officially launched.
It said, “Some of you on iOS may see different options to up or down vote on replies. We’re testing this to understand the types of replies you find relevant in a convo, so we can work on ways to show more of them. Your downvotes aren’t public, while your upvotes will be shown as likes.
