Twitter adds Emoji reactions to direct messages

24 January 2020 2

If you are someone who uses Twitter for direct message communication on a regular basis, you will now be able to express yourself better. Twitter has announced the addition of emoji reactions in direct messages. These reactions will work for simple texts as well as media attached messages on smartphone apps and the website.

The process of sending emoji reactions to messages is fairly simple and straight forward. Open any conversation and look for the heart with the "+" icon next to messages received by you. Tapping on the icon will show you a list of seven emoji reactions. You can then choose the one you want to send. The available options are laughing, surprised, sad face with a tear, heart, fire, thumbs up, and thumbs down.


This new feature works for both individual and group conversations. In the case of the latter, all group members will receive a notification whenever someone will add an emoji reaction to any message. If a particular message receives more than one reaction, Twitter will group them to show the count for each type of reaction. Lastly, a user can undo an emoji reaction anytime they want. This can be helpful when someone ends up sending a wrong reaction or a reaction by mistake.

While Twitter does keep on adding new features and making changes, it has confirmed that one of the most requested features will probably never come. We are talking about the ability to edit tweets which Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said is not possible to add because of high misuse potential.
