Twitter has rolled out a new feature today which removes the star icon which indicated a favourite,they say this measure was brought in to make things less confusing especially for new users of the platform,for any Twitter user I do not see how its confusing for a newcomer as all is pretty much self explanatory..This has angered much of the community.

Twitter could do with some real new ideas such as themes and being able to edit your tweet and some more but for now its all about love…You can however install an extension to bring back the star or pick some other icons.

The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it.

Starting today it will roll out across Android,iOS and more..
