Twitter is testing a new ‘Liked by Author’ label for tweets –

Twitter is testing a new “Found by Author” label that appears when the creator of a tweet likes your reply. A reporter from the team spotted the new label in the Twitter app for Android. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to that the company has been testing several labels to give people context about the tweets they see, but said the social media giant has no more to say about this particular label.

From what we can see so far, once the author of a tweet likes a reply, it will be marked with a badge that is visible to both the person who left the reply and others viewing it. While it has not been confirmed whether the label is being tested worldwide, we are seeing reports from users in several countries recognizing the label.

It’s worth noting that the new label is similar to TikTok’s “Liked by Creator” badge, which appears similarly when the creator of a video likes a comment.

Twitter’s new label may be a nuisance to some users who see it as a distraction or unnecessary addition to what could be an already overcrowded tweet. It may also seem a bit redundant if it’s displayed next to an answer that only has one like. On the other hand, some users may see it as a welcome addition, especially if they want to show that their tweet has been liked by a well-known user, such as a celebrity. In addition, the new label can also be useful in cases where a tweet has received a lot of comments and the original poster wants to highlight a few without having to respond directly.

As the label is still in the testing phase, it is unknown if Twitter plans to officially roll it out to all users.
