Twitter said,

Some of you on iOS may see different options to up or down vote on replies. We’re testing this to understand the types of replies you find relevant in a convo, so we can work on ways to show more of them. Your downvotes aren’t public, while your upvotes will be shown as likes.

The screenshots that recently popped out show that the feature is a copy of Facebook’s thumbs up and down feature. The company says that ‘downvotes’ will not affect the order of replies, and not be available to other users for the time being. It means only the selected iOS users are able to test this feature.

Twitter has been working on this feature for the past year. Kayvon Beykpour was leading this product and gave it a trial by saying that the platform is exploring this feature.
