Twitter and Vine have now switched from favourites to likes in a move made to make the social network easier to use.
Twitter explained that the star could be confusing for newcomers, as people may like a number of items but they may not be their favourite. It argued that, on the other hand, the heart is a universal symbol relevant across a range of languages, cultures and timezones.
As hearts are now used on Periscope, Twitter and Vine, they will now be the common language for the social media community.
This latest change is one of many for the social media network, which recently introduced a new Twitter Safety Centre. It was introduced in order to revamp how user reports are made and make it easier for users to block anyone irritating them on the network.
The Safety Centre will help people to learn about online safety and make sure staff are accessible via the new site. The Safety Centre is organised around Twitter’s tools and policies in order to address public safety, and sections are created specifically for teens, parents and teachers.
“As Twitter evolves along with the world of online safety, we will continue to create new materials for the Safety Center.
“And since we are a global community, in the coming weeks the Safety Center will be translated into some of the most-used languages on Twitter and even more languages over time.”
