Twitter tests to respond to tweets with emojis

Twitter has announced that it will be testing emoji responses from users across Turkey over the next few weeks, and if all goes well, it can promote it more widely.

According to the company, the list of new emojis should help people express themselves quickly in conversations on the platform, if they are not stopped by pressing the "Like" button.

The company stated that Turkish Twitter will get four additional responses for a limited time, the most important of which is the big red heart that the company launched in 2015.

These include emojis (for tweets that make you think), sad emojis (for tweets that make you sad), laugh/wine emojis (for tweets that make you laugh/cry), and gossip emojis (used for congratulatory tweets).

Depending on the user's reaction to this quiz, the platform may change these emojis or provide these functionality in other countries/regions in the future.

The announcement came after a Twitter user survey in March. The survey showed how users would react to tweets similar to Facebook and the emoji they wanted to express.

The survey includes some suggested emoji combinations. It's like accept or dislike buttons, dislike buttons, or like Reddit to vote. But Twitter found from the survey that users are concerned about receiving negative comments through emojis.

The platform said, although frustration and anger are common feelings when reading the tweets. Some people want to express their displeasure with tweets, and we do not currently respond to them like emojis.

"Our goal has always been to encourage healthy public conversations, and we want to see how our current emoji impacts the conversations," she added.

The platform was relatively late on the topic of emojis and started replying via direct messages last year. But they are not the same emoji.

The test was conducted a few months after LinkedIn gave its users the ability to interact with posts using emojis. After years of Facebook doing the same.

It should also be noted that out of all three platforms, Facebook only added "angry" reactions to its list. This may be due to the user's reluctance to accept negative responses.
