Twitter Is Testing the New Upvote-Downvote Feature1 min read
Twitter is currently testing new upvote and downvote reactions for tweets to go with the standard alternatives to retweet and reply. Twitter reportedly affirmed it was trying the feature for a little group of users on iOS, and it’s now been spotted by numerous tweets from users that are included for the experimental group.
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.

iOS users may see upvotes and downvotes in a few unique styles like up and down arrows, a heart icon, and a down bolt, and thumbs up and thumbs down icons.
Currently, votes are not public and Twitter hasn’t confirmed whether it’s going to be a permanent feature or not.
