Twitter has enabled a negative rating of posts, but there is a catch


1 min read

Although users will be able to express a negative opinion about someone’s tweet on Twitter by introducing new features, they will still have no insight into how many other users share their opinion.


Twitter has introduced new features in “Downvote” and “Dislike” options, allowing users to express their disagreement or distrust of certain content.



However, there is a “catch” – only the author of the post on Twitter will be able to see the statistics regarding the number of downvotes and dislike options, which he received after the post.


Two prominent Big Tech entrepreneurs, Marc Andreessen and Elon Musk expressed satisfaction with the new Twitter options.

Mark Andresen made this known by posting on Twitter. He added that users can make Downwalls publicly visible by displaying a reaction screen to their posts in a new post on Twitter.

Twitter’s Downvote feature is a “button” that users should find at the bottom of the post, with likes, retweets, sharing, and a three-point setup option.


The author of the post can see negative statistics, but that is why other Twitter users cannot see how many negative votes he received, thus avoiding the negative connotation of the post itself.


Tesla and SpaceX chief Elon Musk also showed agreement with introducing these options in response to Andersen’s announcement. In short and clear, Musk said in one word – “Yes”.
