    So what’s the point of liking anymore? Like at some point it’s gonna be a single player platform requiring online data gathering

      Probably just for the algorithm, but then again I don’t know much about how Twitter actually works.

      I never cared for the idea of telling the world when I’m going to take a shit or some other completely pointless thing nor do I care to see when Major Company takes a shit either.

      I am assuming that likes will be visible on a tweet but you can’t look through a specific user’s likes unless they allow it? Seems like a decent change tbh

      Back in the day there were only re-tweets and bookmarks. Then Facebook likes became popular and Twitter changed bookmarks which could be private or public into fully public likes. So annoying. Likes should have never existed on Twitter.
