Twitter is adding emoji reactions to its DMs, just like how you can react with different emojis on Facebook. Twitter users can now react to their friends’ messages — be it texts or attachments.

The new feature is already out and available for both iOS and Android users, in addition to those who are using the web version. However, if you’re using the older version that comes with out the new feature, then the reactions given will be seen as text-based messages.

Unlike Facebook, Twitter does have a few different emojis. For instance, the face with heart-eyes and angry face emojis on Facebook are replaced as a normal heart and fire emoji on Twitter. Sadly, there’s still no feature that lets you use emoji to react to tweets.

Twitter users are asking for other features and one particular user voiced out saying, “We didn’t ask for this.” The most-requested feature is still the edit option will not be happening any time soon. In fact, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said, “We’ll probably never do it.”
