Twitter, where Donald Trump posted 123 bonkers tweets today and Nazis and psyops bots roam free, is rolling out a pop-up feature that lets users add an emoji reaction to a Direct Message, kind of like a similar feature that exists in iOS iMessage. So fancy!

Reports Chance Miller at 9to5Mac:
Twitter first started testing this emoji reaction feature last year, but it's now rolling the capability out to all users on the web, iOS, and Android. This feature allows you to add a reaction to direct messages using your normal selection of emoji.
All participants in the direct message thread will receive a notification any time a new reaction is added to a message. Those who don't have the latest version of the Twitter apps will receive a separate message informing them of the reaction.
And here's how you use the new Twitter feature, which unfortunately won't remove the president from office or stop him from using Twitter or ban the Nazis:
To add a reaction, hover over the message and click the reaction button (heart and plus icon), or double tap on the message and pick an emoji from the pop-up. You can undo a reaction at any time and it will be removed from the message for all participants. Click or tap on a reaction in a conversation to view who reacted to the message.
