Twitter is getting a dislike button and I’m irritated – Opinion: Twitter is Focused on the Wrong Thing

twitter dislike button

Today I found out that Twitter is going to create a dislike button.

Apparently they’re going to start testing it out with multiple different designs for the button.

Twitter shared that some users on iOS will be able to see the new upvote and downvote options on tweets.

Basically Twitter is trying to do what Reddit has been doing for years with the upvotes and downvotes.

Apparently we won’t be able to see the downvotes if someone does it to our own Tweets….. although I feel like they’ll start showing it if the test goes well for the dislike button.

The Reason Why I’m Irritated that Twitter is getting a dislike button

Twitter seems to be focused on everything from getting a dislike button to adding Twitter stories to having some sort of Twitter payment, but they have YET to add an “Edit” button.

That’s pretty much all us Twitter users want at this point.

We’ve been wanting an edit button for years and Twitter is focused on everything, but the edit button.

There have been so many times where I’d type up a tweet only for there to be an error that I wanted to correct.

I’d either delete the Tweet and recreate the same tweet without the errors, keep the errors (since the tweet was already getting engagement), or just delete the tweet in general out of slight annoyance.

I am hoping that eventually they’ll realize that the Edit button is what’s most important for Twitter.

    oh gosh!!! I don’t know if I like the dislike button not a fan! Thanks fr sharing this info

  2. I agree 100% that we need an edit button. But I don’t really have an opinion on the dislike button…

  3. I am not sure how great dislike buttons are going to be, I will admit I have always wanted one, but I think they will promote Trolling and Internet Trolls to be worse than ever. Most of them already hid behind their screens anyways, and don’t really live life, only judge the curated ones online, LOL!

  4. Ughhhhh enough with the negativity on social media! Huge thumbs down on the thumbs down twitter LOL!

  5. I had not heard that Twitter was rolling out a dislike button, makes me wonder if we will ever get an edit button.
