Twitter rolls out new emoji reactions-like option in direct messages for all users, the company announced in a tweet.

Twitter rolls new emoji, it enables users to allocate a simple emoji response to any message within a thread.

The reactions are similar to what you’d find on Facebook, with laughing, shocked, sad, heart, and thumbs-up options.

The feature has launched with seven emoji.

Twitter’s selection includes your typical thumbs up, laughing face, heart, and sad crying face emojis but it’s also trying out a couple of more original options.

There’s a fire emoji to let you show your appreciation for sick burns, and a thumbs down emoji for when you need to decide the fate of a roman gladiator.

The option first spotted in testing by reverse engineering pro Jane Manchun Wong back in October.

It looks largely the same as it did then, though the emojis included have been updated.

Earlier, Twitter Inc. said it will test new features early this year that would allow users to control who can reply to their tweets.

It looked to limit abuse and harassment on the platform.

During Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Twitter provided an early look at a new replies tool.

Here’s how it works: When you compose a tweet, you’ll be able to choose who can reply.

There are four options: anyone, people you follow or mention, people you mention or just you.
