Twitter has removed the star icon found under tweets and have replaced it with a heart.

Twitter Inc. told ABC News the change was made because the star was confusing to new users whereas the heart is more understood around the globe.

Clicking the heart will now mean that you “like” a tweet. This is in comparison to the star that meant the tweet was a “favorite” for you.

Jack Dorsey, who was named the permanent CEO last month, is pushing Twitter to become simpler and to provide easier services for both new and current users of the messaging service.
