Twitter is testing out a new feature that would allow users to react to conversations using emojis.

Twitter’s chief design officer previously hinted at the rollout of an emoji react system similar to that of Facebook and LinkedIn.

A Twitter spokesperson hinted that the company was looking for ways to allow users to add greater nuance to their tweets.”We’re exploring additional ways for people to express themselves in conversations happening on Twitter.”

The spokesperson added that the idea is still in the early stages and would be available in addition to the heart emoji that is currently on the site.

Twitter has recently been testing out several new features, including e-commerce links and an undo button for tweets.
