Twitter uses hearts for likes, no more stars

Posted:

(CNN) -- Twitter is tweaking its social media site.

The social media giant gave the star icon and "favorite" action the boot.

Twitter replaced the star with a heart and re-named the "favorite" as a "like".

The design changes are part of Twitter's move to make itself easier to understand and use for newbies.

The social media giant has struggled to win over new users in recent years.

But many fans are taking Twitter to task for the changes.

Some users are asking Twitter to bring back the stars and favorites.
