Social media platform Twitter recently introduced a new update where tweets with the hashtag ‘#AppleEvent’ have a special ‘like’ button. In this update, the ‘like’ button, on every tweet with ‘#AppleEvent’, swirls into a little animation when someone clicks on it. However, this update is only available for iOS users which has definitely not gone down well with the android users. It also triggered a hilarious meme fest on social media as internet users got creative with the concept.
Apple was lately gearing up for the Time Flies event where they launched various new gadgets. The Apple event is a huge programme according to the company calendar, and they have unique ways of promoting it every year. This time, they decided to introduce a Twitter update for Apple users where they can see a special effect when they like certain tweets on their feed.
In the update, when an iOS user likes a tweet with ‘#AppleEvent’, they see a little animation before the ‘like’ button becomes red. In the animation, a line starts from the bottom and goes on to draw a satisfying heart within a split second. The outline makes the ‘like’ button look pretty. The transition is smooth and has hence been leaving internet users around the world fascinated.
A number of people took the opportunity to create hilarious memes out of the new update. Most iOS users have been of the opinion that the animation is quite addictive and has them clicking on the ‘like’ button over and over again for no specific reason. They have mentioned through various GIFs and images how they have been liking and re-liking the tweets just to see the special effects. Have a look at few of the reactions here.
iOS users have also taken the opportunity to make fun of Android users who have been longing to see such an effect on their Twitter handles. They have triggered the ‘iOS vs Android’ debate again while conveniently having the ball in their court this time. Have a look at few of the hilarious reactions here.
