As noted, Twitter is working on four new additional tweet options that are : Cheer, Hmm, Sad, Haha, which have been chosen on the basis of platform's use and users searches showing that the 'laughing while crying' emoji, and the 'crying face' were among the most used within tweets in 2020.
As Twitter is working potential emoji response options over the past few months, so the new test is not really surprising for the users.
But Wong noted that the tech company would slightly take a different turn from those of FB style emojis, as it needs its users to explain their emotions via their Tweets.
The company is also planning to work on 'makes-you-think' option.
