A few months ago, everybody on Twitter was freaking out when the social network announced that it was switching the “stars” likes for the “heart emoji.” Now it may seem buried in the past, but for some, the pain is still fresh. If you’re still bemoaning the loss of the star on Twitter, we have good news: There’s a way that you can react with any emoji you want. You can cheers with the Champagne glass, give the thumbs up, stick to the old-fashioned star or even keep track of good news with the salsa dancer. It takes a bit of behind-the-scenes tech hacking, so get ready.

First, you’re going to have to download Stylish, a web extension. It only works on Chrome or Firefox, so pick your poison. Once it’s downloaded, open Stylish by picking the new S icon at the top of your browser and select “Manage installed styles.” Then select “Write new style.”

Now, just copy and paste this code:

.HeartAnimationContainer {

visibility: hidden;


.HeartAnimationContainer:after {

content: ‘🍺’;

visibility: visible;

display: block;

position: absolute;



But there’s a trick. Add four spaces to the second and fifth through eighth lines. It should look like this when you’re done.


Now you’re all set and ready to react with whatever you really feel on Twitter.
