As many of you may have gathered from the news, Twitter has announced that they are changing the stars that were previously used to favorite tweets into hearts. Also going forward favorites will now be known as likes.
From the company’s blog post regarding this feature
We hope you like what you see on Twitter and Vine today: hearts!
We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be yourfavorite.
The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it.
In what we think was a surprisingly quick update to the Windows 10 app, this visual change from the star to the heart is now reflected in the app. There is no changelog for this update and there don’t seem to be any other changes in the app.
These are the notes from the last changelog
- Conversations have a new look! They’re easier to find and fun to join.
- A blue line in your home timeline indicates a conversation between people you follow
- You can now watch videos within your timeline
- Create and edit lists, you can also pin them to the start menu!
