Twitter kills Favourites for Likes

Twitter is changing the star icon for favourites to a heart, and will be renaming the feature “like”.

The company said it wants to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and that the star could be confusing at times.

“You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favourite,” said Twitter.

Hearts are already used on Periscope, and will now make their way to both Twitter and Vine.
