Naturally, quite a lot of people have noticed.

Twitter seems to have marked its 10th birthday by adding animation to it's "like" hearts. You can test it out on this tweet if you like.

Hahaha, Liking things is a joy. These little hearts just explode, like what you just Liked is the greatest thing they ever saw.

WOAH DOES ANYONE ELSES HEARTS LIKE EXPLODE OF CONFETTI WHEN YOU LIKE A TWEET!!??!?!!!?!!

Although as this IS Twitter, there's a healthy cynicism.

Thanks for the jaunty hearts Twitter, but could we get something useful next time, like an edit feature. Or our lives back.

A representative for Twitter confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the hearts exploding into confetti feature is only happening today.
