This icon is misleading
I thought of it as a direct share to WhatsApp but it seems just a regular share option to all apps. pic.twitter.com/2OHWtk5SCi

It’s okay. I never share my tweets on WhatsApp actually. There was already a share icon if I ever needed to.

To be honest, it isn’t required as there is already a share button. It sure makes it easier to share but still the previous share button seems fine. ️

The popularity of WhatsApp in India

The popularity of WhatsApp in India is very high. The chat app has more than 400 million users in the country. Twitter is one of the most used apps for sharing content with friends and family in India.
