    I will definitely miss Twitter's "fav" animation, and the new animation is so underwhelming.

    I also used Favorites as a way of both liking and bookmarking a tweet. It would feel redundant to split them up and I see why they decided to go with this direction, it makes sense. I still don't feel 100% over it though, maybe it'll grow on me over time.

    For those that want to go back to the Favorites icon.

      The first time I encountered the Titter Hearts, during its A/B test, the animation was definitely perfunctory and underwhelming. I purposely avoided fav'ing anything to do my part in trying to keep the whimsical stars. Now that Hearts have won out, though, they seem to have polished that animation up — it has a similar expanding ring and colorful particles that the original Fav'ing animation had.

      Anyway hearts make my timeline way cuter so ~whatevs~ ♥♥♥
