Twitter update for Windows 10 changes stars to hearts and favorites to likes

Twitter has updated its official Windows 10 app today, and while there is no change log, users of the app will see that the "favorites" label has been changed to "likes", and the star logo for likes has also been changed to hearts.

The official version number of the Windows 10 Twitter app is now 4.2.5, but it is the user interface changes, which are also available on other Twitter platforms, that are sure to get the most attention. Here's what Twitter had to say:

"We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite.""The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it."

What do you think about Twitter ditching the star for a heart and renaming favorites to likes? Let us know in the comments!
