In a move that could change how we use Twitter, the company’s founder is thinking about removing the “LIKE” button.
Twitter ‘s CEO, Jack Dorsey said that he’d like to get rid of the feature “soon.” People are hopeful the removal would encourage real debate and conversation instead of a mindless like of something someone tweeted.
As we’ve been saying for a while, we are rethinking everything about the service to ensure we are incentivizing healthy conversation, that includes the like button. We are in the early stages of the work and have no plans to share right now. https://t.co/k5uPe5j4CW

This might be one step in an overhaul of the social media platform. Users responded to the potential change by saying there are many other things Twitter needs to fix other than getting rid of the heart.
Do you like this potential change? What would you fix about Twitter?
