No, Twitter Isn't Getting Rid of the 'Like' Button

Twitter was awash in reports Monday morning that founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said he is planning to get rid of the social network’s ‘like’ feature “soon,” but the heart-shaped button doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. At least for now. Twitter, in a statement, said the fate of the like button, along with many other features, is being assessed as part of an ongoing look at how the company can encourage ‘healthy conversation,’ but there are no immediate plans for changes. (The company did not directly address The Telegraph’s claim about Dorsey’s statement.)
