Twitter likely tests a ‘liked by author’ label

Twitter is trying a new liked by author’ label that seems when the author likes a reply on the tweet thread, a feature similar to TikTok’s ‘liked by creator’ badge. TechCrunch reportedly spotted the name in the Twitter Android application.

As per TechCrunch, when the author of a tweet likes a reply, it will be marked with a badge and will be visible to anyone viewing the tweet.

There is no clear data if the label is being tested around the world, yet users in several nations have spotted the label. It is unclear if the label will officially roll out to all users as it is still in the testing phase. Reportedly, the feature might be helpful when the author wants to highlight a few responses among various replies to a tweet thread.

The label could also distract users with already cluttered tweets, TechCrunch said in its report. The report noticed a spokesperson affirmed that Twitter has been testing different labels, however, the microblogging webpage didn’t have a lot to uncover on ‘liked by author’ label.
