Twitter Downvote Button: How to Dislike Replies on Your Tweets

Twitter has been working on a “dislike” button for a while now but never brought it to the final version. Now, they have introduced a “Reply Downvote” feature which seems like dislike but it’s not exactly what you think it is. Basically, you will be able to dislike any replies on your tweet and no one will be able to see it even the author of the tweet. So it’s not like the same dislike or downvote button on other social networks. Let’s know more about the Twitter downvote button feature and how it will work.

How Twitter Downvote Button Will Work

Back in July last year, Twitter posted on its official handle that some iOS users would soon start seeing up or down vote button for replies on their tweets. This will help Twitter understand what type of replies a user wants on his Tweet.

Now, Twitter is expanding the same test feature for web and Android users as well.

Twitter wrote, “We learned a lot about the types of replies you don’t find relevant and we’re expanding this test –– more of you on web and soon iOS and Android will have the option to use reply downvoting. Downvotes aren’t public, but they’ll help inform us of the content people want to see.”

Key Points of Twitter Downvote

This is how the feature will work:

1. Users will be able to upvote or downvote all replies on their tweets.

2. Your downvotes will be visible to you only while upvotes will be shown as likes.

4. No one will be able to know downvotes on a tweet.

3. Up or down votes will not change the order of replies.

So this is how Twitter up or downvote feature work for replies on your Tweets. As menthoend, this will help Twitter show you more relevant replies to you.
