As tech lovers around the world prepared for the ‘Time Flies’ event organised by Apple on Tuesday night, Twitter introduced a new feature: a unique animation for likes on tweets that featured the hashtag #AppleEvent.
The like button swirls into a colourful heart when someone likes a tweet with the hashtag #AppleEvent. After several Twitter users posted about how it worked many started liking and even re-liking tweets with the hashtag to see the animation. However, this was restricted to the Twitter app on iOS devices manufactured by Apple.
This didn’t go down well with Android users who couldn’t see the animation on their devices. However, it is visible on desktops or laptops.
