Say what you will about Twitter: it is constantly evolving as a service. Whether it’s introducing a paid subscription option that adds a “undo” button or deleting Fleets from the app for good, it’s been a busy, ever-evolving year for the social network everyone loves to hate. A new beta test for Twitter introduces various voting and voting options specifically for responses, but only time will tell if these tools actually reach a wider audience.

Not surprisingly, many users notice similarities between these new options and Reddit, including the site’s own social media manager, who tweeted in response to Twitter Support.

The overall response to this beta test appears to be negative, as users are wondering if it will just release additional toxicity on everyone’s favorite site. Still, it’s probably better to take notes from Reddit’s favorite system than last month’s Facebook reaction experiment. For now, we’ll just hope editable tweets are next on the agenda – just kidding, we all know it’s never going to happen.
