Twitter replaces stars with hearts

Nov 3 (Reuters) - Twitter Inc has replaced its star-shaped “favorite” icon with a heart-shaped icon called “like”.

“You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite,” Twitter said in a blog post on Tuesday.

“We know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers.” (Reporting by Abhirup Roy in Bengaluru; Editing by Ted Kerr)
