Twitter added the ability to display dislikes under posts in test mode. The rating function has appeared among some users of the application on iOS – the microblogging service has added it to the standard comment and retweet buttons. Moreover, the new option is implemented in different styles: it can be arrows or a thumb up and down, as well as a combination of a heart icon and an arrow down. As noted on the social network, the answers with the most likes will be considered the most relevant.
Twitter clarified that dislikes are visible only to those who put them, while the number of approving reactions is displayed for everyone. At the same time, in test mode, voting does not change the order of replies in the feed.
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.

Twitter has yet to make a final decision on the new feature. It is likely that the ability to set dislikes will not appear for all users. In addition, it is not yet known whether reactions will determine the order in which posts are displayed in the app or on Twitter.
In the spring, the social network began testing another new feature – cancellation of the publication. As “Secret” reported, the time to cancel a tweet will most likely be limited to a few seconds.
