Twitter has finally made the transition from using “favorites” to using “likes”. The favorites option will now be a red heart which signifies liking a post.

The social media company made comments claiming this change is an effort to simplify the user experience to attract new users. Apparently a star is less intimidating to new comers as they recognize it from Facebook, Tumblr, and/or Instagram.

You should expect to see these rolling out in the next few days. The change will also affect Twitter owned Vine.
