Twitter Might Kill off Its ‘Like’ Button

Howard TerryNov 01, 2018

Twitter has responded to the Telegraph's report, claiming that the company doesn't have any plans to kill the like button right now.

Twitter may be removing the "like" button feature on the social media platform.

The Like button hasn't been with Twitter from the start, either.

Indeed, trial lawyer Max Kennerly tweeted out his own opinion on the matter, suggesting in his own posting that getting rid of the "like" button would undoubtedly make things worse for debate.

Aside from that, the Vice President of Twitter communications, Brandon Borrman, has also stated that this decision will not happen so soon.

The Bookmark tool lets users flag tweets to be added to their bookmark tab for future reading.

Dorsey has said that the objective of removing the like function is to "improve debate" on the site.

Twitter posted October 29 about the possible change, but nothing is finalized since the redesign is in its early stages.

Other users argued Twitter's troll problems would not be solved - and could get worse - by doing away with the feature.

Dorsey previously announced Twitter was partnering with outside firms to assess the "health of public conversation" on the site.

Although, Twitter has not given any significant timeline regarding the abandonment of the "like" button but according to the company's representative, "the changes would lead to healthy conversation".

The reported change-up comes just months after Twitter unearthed the, which allows users to privately save tweets they are fans of. "How do we incentivize healthy conversation?"

Since then, Dorsey has asserted that he may revamp the way that people follow other accounts on the platform.
