In a bid that surely won’t backfire, Twitter is about to change its social media platform by removing “likes,” the Telegraph reports. The reason? Apparently, Twitter thinks removing likes will make discussions much better on the service.
The news reportedly comes straight from an event with Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, who claims that he never particularly enjoyed the system and that the site would “soon” do away with it altogether. Additional changes include letting users edit tweaks and a new verification system “so that a blue tick is no longer a preserve of celebrities and ‘influencers,’” the Telegraph states. All three are part of a list of changes behind the scenes to cut down on the site’s “echo chambers” and create a “healthier place” online.
