Is Twitter Removing the 'Like' Button?

There’s a rumor swirling that Twitter may be removing the “like” button from the social media site!

The Telegraph reports that the platform’s founder, Jack Dorsey, made the suggestion at an event last week.

He apparently admitted he didn’t like the “like” button and would be getting rid of it “soon.” He then explained that removing the button would “improve the quality of debate on the social network.”

Twitter responded to the report, saying, “As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now.”

“I’ve been DMing with @jack about his bizarre need to verify white supremacists on his platform for the last 8 months or so, and after all the exchanges, I’ve reached a conclusion: the dude simply does not seem to give a f*ck,” Seth tweeted on Tuesday (July 3).

So far, Jack, nor Twitter, has not responded to Seth‘s allegation. Stay tuned.

Twitter Doubles Character Limit to 280 - Do You Like This Feature? Vote Now!

Twitter has upped its character limit from 140 to 280 and the social media app has begun rolling out the feature to select users!

“When people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people tweeting,” Twitter said in a blog post.

Jack Dorsey, the CEO and co-founder of Twitter, wrote a tweet with the new extended length to explain the reasoning for the feature.

“This is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet. And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence!” he said.

So, we have to ask. What do you think of this new feature?!

Twitter CEO Explains @POTUS Glitch, Apologizes for Mishap

Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, is opening up about why people’s accounts automatically followed Donald Trump‘s new @POTUS handle, even after they unfollowed it.

The exec explained how the “Obama administration worked with all their platforms to craft a transition plan. Because @POTUS is an institutional account (not personal) they felt it only fair to transition accounts with followers intact, but 0 tweets.”

“We kicked off that plan at 12p Eastern yesterday,” Jack continued. “If you were following @POTUS before 12pET, by end of day you’d be following *two* accounts: @POTUS44 (44th Admin) and @POTUS (45th Admin).”

“Two issues were reported during the day which we spent the night confirming and have now corrected,” Jack continued.
