Twitter Introduces "Down-Vote" Option On Tweets

 Global microblogging platform, Twitter has introduced a ‘dislike’ option on the application which will allow users to show their negative reactions to tweets. 

According to a post by Twitter Support, the feature will only be available to iOS systems.

Twitter noted that iOS users will now see new up-vote and down-vote options below a tweet.

The tweet from the support team read, “Some of you on iOS may see different options to up or down vote on replies 

“We’re testing this to understand the types of replies you find relevant in a convo, so we can work on ways to show more of them. Your downvotes aren’t public, while your upvotes will be shown as likes."

It further tweeted, “Some key notes about this experiment: 1. This is just a test for research right now.

2. This is not a dislike button.

3. Your downvotes are visible to you only.

4. Votes won’t change the order of replies.”

Despite creating the downvote button, Twitter clarified that the number of dislikes on a tweet can only be seen by the author of the tweet unlike YouTube and other social media platforms.

This, it said, will help the author to understand the types of replies relevant in a conversation.

The American blogging platform has been evolving slowly since its creation. Last year, Twitter made a feature that allows users to limit comments by setting who can reply: it could be everyone, people they follow, or people they mention. 

It also introduced a story section (fleets) on the top of the app that allows people to post their daily life on the platform just like Facebook. 

The platform was banned on June 5 by President Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigerian government for allegedly threatening its corporate existence. 

The ban came after Twitter deleted a tweet by Buhari which was considered to be distasteful by many Nigerians, some of who complained to the platform.
