Twitter May Stop Counting Your ‘Likes’ And ‘Retweets’

Twitter may soon stop counting your “likes” and “retweets.” The changes are a part of a prototype update that the social media service is currently showcasing at the South by Southwest festival in Austin.  The change is part of a push to “improve the health of the conversations” on the social networking site.   Critics who have been “shadowbanned” note that it’ll be much harder to detect, because they “won’t be able to see the massive drop in engagement”.
