Twitter is Reportedly Working on Reactions for Direct Messages!

Social Media Platforms are widely used across the globe for many reasons including communication. This is why most of the services support Direct Messages where two or more users can privately communicate with each other.

Direct Messages (DM) on Twitter are not as popular as they are on Facebook and the Apps and Services it owns. However, this hasn’t stopped the micro-blogging platform from improving the said feature.

It looks like Twitter users will soon be witnessing a new addition to the Direct Messages feature. Renowned App Researcher Jane Manchun Wong recently tweeted about Twitter testing DM reactions. If you are an avid Facebook Messenger user, you might already know where this story is heading to!

According to the screenshot shared by Wong, users will be able to choose from 7 different reactions to express how they feel about a particular message. Reactions expressing happiness, sadness, angriness and other emotions will be available. Surprisingly, thumbs up and thumbs down emojis are nowhere to be found.

Such reactions come in handy when you don’t want to respond to someone with a message but don’t want to appear rude at the same time.


As of now, it isn’t known whether Twitter has plans to make this feature live in the near future or not. However, we will surely keep you updated with any developments regarding this story!
