Stephen: Twitter users react to Like feature potentially being removed

Dislike! Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reportedly suggested last week that the social media platform may be getting rid of its “Like” button–and users are none too happy. “Founder Jack Dorsey last week admitted at a Twitter event that he was not a fan of the heart-shaped button and that it would be getting rid of it ‘soon,'” The Telegraph reported Monday. The outlet added that removing the “Like” feature is being done in a bid to “improve the quality of debate on the social network.” However, Twitter itself tweeted Monday about the news, “As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now.” Meanwhile, actual Twitter users are saying things like, “This is all they could come up with?” and “I’m skeptical of this actually happening.”
