The founder of Twitter says the platform will soon remove the ability to "like" tweets.

According to the Telegraph, Jack Dorsey spoke at a Twitter event last week where he said the feature would be gone "soon."

The intent of this move is to improve the quality of debate on the social network.

Twitter responded to the Telegraph's report with the following.

The "like" button was introduced in 2015 to replace the "favorite" feature.
