I like this now! The reactions list really should be on the bottom left because it's in the correct place when the eye movement is "reading". And all the actions on the right portion of the card, which makes some sense (you start reading on the left part of the card and you take action on the right part).
Coincidentally, it also means that footer/header UI elements were just rotated around counter-clockwise. This could be good for intuition, makes it more predictable to know where the UI element was moved to in the new design.
PS: the emojis are now bigger, too. They used to be "small" font size, now they're "normal".
