Twitter is working on tweet reactions similar to Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms. This should let the users express their feeling towards a tweet more precisely. This information comes courtesy of Jane Manchun Wong, who has given other prominent and exact information for the blue tick verification program, Tip Jar, and more.
There is even a glimpse of how these new reactions might look like. Currently only the "Hmm" and "Haha" reactions have proper icons. "Cheer" and "Sad" just use the "Like" icon.
