Like really pissed. And we understand why to be honest.

Twitter dropped the bombshell and made the change along with the below announcement without warning this afternoon.

Twitter's logic is that they want to "make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers".

They also said "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."

Since then, the reaction has been one of disagreement. A lot.
