Internal ‘Dislike’ Button for Tweet Replies is being tested by Twitter – MacRumors

Twitter Feature
The dislike button is visible to the person who is viewing tweets, but it is not a publicly available metric or visible to the author of the tweet. The thumbs down option will allow a tweet reply to be downvoted.

Twitter appears to be testing a new “dislike” or thumbs down button for tweets, which is designed to let people downvote replies. Twitter says that the feature is available for “some” iOS users.

Twitter says that it is an internal tool that is designed to help Twitter understand what people think is valuable to a conversation.

There is no word on whether this is a feature that Twitter plans to roll out to everyone in the future, and for now, it is limited to a select number of users.

Maybe that means that YOUR downvotes are not displayed under YOUR feed, however the cumulative downvotes from everyone will be tallied.

Ashton Kutcher suggested this just a few days ago as a means to help prevent so much hate and vile spewing on the platform. Just put a downvote and move on.

You know, MacRumors used to have a dislike button too. Perhaps that would help get this site back to the way it used to be many years ago too. Just a simple dislike and move on. I guess technically it has a dislike button now, but it’s hidden behind a like button. UI matters!

If downvotes aren’t public, what’s the point?

I’m on Reddit (Apollo FTW) and Twitter regularly. I look for the dislike/downvote button on Twitter regularly. They would definitely be able to give me a more personalized/accurate Explore/For You page if it existed.

twitter copies reddit. instagram copies Facebook who copies instagram who copies tik tok… apple or Bezos or Zuckerberg or jack or whoever should just buy them all and dispense with this fragmented social media world. and then we’ll get new upstarts and can start the cycle over again.

Yeah this is sure to make Twitter better. Though I suppose dislikes are easier to explain than being ratio’d.
