"when we report someone for death or rape threats or hate speech, please remove them."
twitter: "remove the like button? it's done."
"no, just the shitty people--"twitter: "your account has been suspended for violating the terms of service."â€” Anne T. Donahue (@annetdonahue) October 29, 2018
Hopefully things won't get this grim.

Without a like button on Twitter, how will we politely acknowledge well-meaning GIF replies that arenâ€™t very apt or funny?

Maybe this isn't all bad though. Maybe Twitter will replace the "like" button with something that better captures what it's like to use the site with all of its problems.
