When the author of a tweet loves your response, a new “Liked by Author” label that Twitter is testing shows. The new label was discovered by a TechCrunch reporter using the Twitter Android app. A Twitter representative told TechCrunch that the business has been experimenting with different labels to help users understand the context of the tweets they receive, but that the social media behemoth has no more information to provide on this particular label. As far as we can determine, if a tweet’s author likes a reply, the reply is recognized with a badge that is visible to both the author of the reply and anybody else who is watching it.
Although the label’s global testing status is unknown, there have been reports of users in a number of nations detecting the label. It’s important to note that the new label resembles TikTok’s “Liked by Author” badge, which shows up when a video’s creator likes a remark. Some users may object to Twitter’s new label because they think it adds clutter or is unneeded to an already busy message. When it is placed next to a comment that has just one like, it could appear a little unnecessary.
However, other users could find it to be a welcome feature, especially if they wish to show off the fact that a famous person, like a celebrity, liked their tweet. The new label might also be helpful when a tweet has gotten a lot of responses and the original writer wishes to spotlight a few of them without explicitly responding to them. It’s unclear if Twitter intends to formally push out the designation to all users as it’s still in the testing stage. San Francisco: The microblogging website Twitter is probably experimenting with a new label called “Liked by Author,” which shows up when the author of a tweet loves your response.
TechCrunch was informed by a company representative that the firm has been experimenting with different labels to help provide context for the tweets that users see, but that the social media behemoth is unable to provide any further information on this particular label. According to the article, when a tweet’s author likes a reply, the reply is recognized with a badge that is visible to both the person who wrote the reply and anybody else who is watching it.
