Twitter said Wednesday it’s testing a way to up or down vote replies as part of an effort to understand what remarks users find more relevant. 

In a tweet posted by Twitter Support, the company said that some iPhone users might see this option. The company said downvotes won’t be public but upvotes will appear as likes on a tweet.

Twitter users who spotted the new icons tweeted out images of what the new tool looks like, which are a thumbs up and thumbs down button. 

The company didn’t immediately respond to questions about how many people are part of this test. Some celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher say that a dislike button could help cut down on hateful comments on social media.
