Twitter Just Got Rid Of The ‘Favorite’ Button & People Are Bugging

November 3, 2015. A day that will live in infamy. The day Twitter decided to throw our hearts into the sky and shoot them with arrows. The day the favorite died.

Today, the social media platform that challenges you to fit your thoughts into 140 characters on the daily announced that they’re getting rid of its “favorite” button along with its star symbol. Instead, you can now show your appreciation for tweets by hitting a heart and “liking” it.

Their reasoning? “You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite.”

You can say a lot with a heart. Introducing a new way to show how you feel on Twitter:

It’s just so sudden. Like…where was the warning, Twitter? What if everything is my favorite? Why are you trying to hard to be Instagram? WHY?

Apparently, people really hate change.
