In a somewhat belated move, Twitter may be expanding the options for reacting to a Twitter post from being able to simply Like it to a number of potential responses including “Like”, “Cheer”, “Hmm”, “Sad” and “Haha”.

The news is via reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong who tweeted.

Twitter already supports reactions in DMs, but the 1:1 nature of those interactions are somewhat different from the more toxic nature of Twitter in general, where concerns are being raised by malicious responses to controversial news.

Of course given that Facebook has navigated these waters already I am sure Twitter will survive as well.
