You Can Now React to Twitter DMs with Emojis

Twitter has recently launched a new option that enables users to react to direct messages with an emoji.

This feature is available on other messaging platforms as well so it is of no surprise that Twitter decided to join the bandwagon to get more engagement from its users.


Users had a clue that this option would be released soon after reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong was spotted testing this option last year in October. The option looks a lot like the one she tweeted but the emojis have been changed.

"It’s quick and easy to add an emoji reaction to a Direct Message – both text and media attachments. To add a reaction, hover over the message and click the reaction button (heart and plus icon), or double-tap on the message and pick an emoji from the pop-up. You can undo a reaction at any time and it will be removed from the message for all participants. Click or tap on a reaction in a conversation to view who reacted to the message. Additionally, all conversation participants will receive a notification any time a new reaction is added to a message.," described Twitter.

As you can tell from her tweet that the ‘heart eyes’ emojis didn’t make it to the rollout and instead thumbs up and down emojis have been introduced.

Twitter was also reportedly testing reaction emojis for tweets but that option never saw the light of day even though the use of emojis have significantly increased on the platform, which itself is a huge motivation to introduce more such features. Provided that Twitter has been focusing on direct messaging lately, we can expect it to introduce new features to improve user experience.

Twitter has mentioned that users who haven’t updated to the latest app won’t be able to see emojis and instead text-based messages will be displayed.
