Twitter now enables users to quickly react with an emoji to the direct messages they receive.
As Spigot Inc. has learned from Social Media Today, “Twitter has announced the launch of its new reactions-like option in direct messages, which enables users to allocate a quick emoji response to any message within a thread.”
Twitter explained that the procedure is quick and easy. Users can add a reaction not only to text messages but to media attachments too.
All they have to do is to double tap on the message and pick the emoji they want. If they change their mind, they can immediately undo the reaction.
When it comes to group chats, users can tap on the emoji to find out who reacted to their message. Also, every time a new reaction is added they get notified.
Given the fact that a number of messaging platforms already provide these tools, makes sense for Twitter to be looking for new ways to enhance users’ experience.
