The social media network Twitter might be finally expanding that range as it’s testing a new feature called Reactions. With additional emoji over the coming days. The company is testing four new emojis.
Back in 2015, Twitter tested a wider variety including the 100 heart eyes and other emojis. However, this time it wanted to find emojis that are universally recognizable and represent what people want to express about Tweets.
Twitter narrowed it down to those additional four after conducting surveys. And researching what the most common words and emoji are in Tweets. It found that the most popular one is the laughing emoji and that people want to express reactions centered around funny. It also identified entertained and curious as the top emotions people feel when reading tweets.
Twitter said that reactions will help people better, show how they feel in conversations. While also giving those Tweeting a better understanding of how their Tweets are received. The new reactions will be available in Turkey only for a limited time on Twitter for iOS, Android, and the web over the coming days. However, it added that based on this test, Twitter may expand the availability of the Reactions experiment to other regions.
