Twitter is considering removing its “like” button and the reason why actually makes a lot of sense…


As we scroll through our feeds, we’re all guilty of lazily “liking” something. Those “likes” go into a sort of Twitter purgatory, most likely never to be seen again. How often do we go back to something we “liked” to engage with it?

Well, just like everything else on the platform, Twitter is reconsidering the like button altogether. Multiple reports have surfaced, saying the social media giant has plans to remove the “like” tool to improve the quality of debate. On top of it all, founder Jack Dorsey admitted last week he’s not a fan and will rid it “soon.”

Twitter has commented as a whole, addressing the future of the “like” button and more…

As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now.

Do you think Twitter would be better if it ditched the heart? Let us know!
