Twitter may be experimenting with a new feature to let users react to tweets with emojis, according to a Wednesday tweet from app researcher Jane Manchun Wong. The screenshot attached to Wong’s tweet shows a line of emoji reactions, including a “100” icon, prayer hands and a shocked face, underneath the option to retweet or retweet with a comment. Emojis could be used as a quick way to react to a tweet.
Twitter already offers emoji reactions for direct messages.
The new emoji reaction option was uncovered in Twitter’s code during private testing, and it’s uncertain if this feature will roll out to the public. Twitter had reportedly experimented with emoji reactions in 2015.
