Twitter Inc. confirmed on Thursday the tech giant is testing new emoji reactions for tweets that could be added to the existing "like" feature. For a limited time, users in Turkey will be able to respond to tweets with "Face with tears of joy,” "Thinking face," "Clapping hands," "Crying face," as well as "Heart" emojis.

Twitter insisted this will allow people to express their feelings when it comes to a particular tweet by holding the Like button until new emojis appear and can then be selected. However, Twitter decided not to go with emojis that represent negative feelings, such as an "Angry face" or "Thumbs down."

Users will be able to react to tweets using new emojis from their iOS and Android phones, as well as through the web app.
