Twitter Borrowing “Like” From Facebook


Twitter is testing "Like" and starring favorite tweets, it was reported today.

The microblogging site has been working with a small number of users to test out the new features, which may replace the "favorite" it currently uses, according to the Next Web. The website showed a screenshot of a Techmeme editor with the ability to "Like" tweets, and the liked tweets are starred and saved.

We don't know if this means Facebook can send the social media company a cease-and-desist letter for using :"Like," but it doesn't seem to be very original, does it? The starring, however, is new, but hardly different enough to make us not think of Facebook while we're "Like"-ing.
