‘Like’ Everyone Else

by Kim Stangle

Facebook has the “like” denoted by the ever-familiar thumbs-up.  Instagram lets you double-tap to “heart” something. And, of course, you could favorite something on Twitter with the star.

Today, that star became a heart.  And just like that, favorites were no more.  The heart now symbolizes a “like.”  Call it semantics, but the star was so much more than just a heart.  The star was a bookmark for tweets I didn’t have time to read fully … or at all.  The star was for tweets that—pardon the hyperbole—were my favorite.

This might be the end of the star, but if Twitter is listening, it won’t be the end of the favorite.  Unlike practically every other social platform, there is a case to be made on Twitter for the favorite.  Is the heart just the beginning of something new or will Twitter end up just like everyone else?
