For some reason, Twitter thinks its DM feature needs iMessage-like reactions
Where is the emoji for confused?
I’m not sure why Twitter feels the need to add this in, but I guess for some of us out there, reacting with an emote works better than a lame “haha” or frown face.
Twitter’s Direct Message reactions work exactly as you expect them too
Just like with iMessage, Twitter DM reactions work exactly as expected. Available emoji include laughing, crying, surprised, a heart, fire emoji (please, buy my website), and thumbs up and down emoji. Pretty standard stuff.
Using the new feature is super simple. When in your DMs, click or press the heart emoji beside the message and it will pop up with the above options. Choose the one you want and boom, you’re done. This works on both desktop and the updated mobile app. If you are in a group DM, you can hover or click the reaction to see who sent it.
Honestly, this is whatever. It’s cool, but nothing game-changing. I’m still over here thinking about editing my tweets.
