However, this is not the first time the company has tested emoji reaction. According to a report by Social Media Today, Twitter first started testing emoji reaction in 2015, but in 2016 it was launched by Facebook. But Twitter did not make it official.
See this screenshot, it is not clear yet that it will be used and how much will be changed till it is official.
It is worth noting that this security researcher had also spotted many features of social media during testing earlier. That is, he first tweeted about many features before going public. One of these also features Instagram Like Count Hyde.
Significantly, many people on social media do not like Twitter’s new feature Fleets. On Twitter itself, many people wrote that now Twitter has also started on the path of Facebook and instead of bringing new features, features are being brought like Facebook.
