Social Media - Twitter Are Removing the 'Like' to "Improve Debate'

Twitter is planning to remove the ability to "like" tweets in a radical move that "aims to improve the quality of debate on the social network." We can't see how.

Founder Jack Dorsey last week admitted at a Twitter event that he was not a fan of the heart-shaped button ... and that it would be getting rid of it “soon”.

The feature was introduced in 2015 to replace “favourites”, a star-shaped button that allowed people to bookmark tweets to read later.

This will not "improve the quality of debate".

You know what will ? Ban the extremists when they are actually reported for multiple breaches of terms and conditions in inciting violence and hatred.
