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.
Hey Nicholas, this is part of an experiment to give you the option to up or down vote a reply and help us better understand the types of replies you find relevant in a conversation. More info: https://t.co/g8LcTpQqDv

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.
