There are certain moments in a person’s life when they feel whole. This exact moment might be one of them. Goodbye empty boxes, hello web emotions. Twitter.com is now showing emoji characters. Bright things are ahead for 2014.
Use those 140 characters however you want to express your excitement. The smiling poop emoji is encouraged. Hopefully this is a huge push for more emoji options in the future. Go back and tweet all those empty boxes with smileys, flowers, lightning blots, hearts, or the Halloween pumpkin BECAUSE YOU CAN.
Either way, Twitter web enthusiasts all over the world rejoice together.
It wouldn’t be a party without the option for certain drawbacks. Unfortunately, tweets including emojis that are embedded onto websites will not work. All this means is that your screenshot button will become your best friend. Don’t let that information ruin this magnificent day. *Tries to draft tweet to include all seven notebook emoji options*
Twitter just looks like a happier place to hang out:
What does this have for the future of emojis and their web presence? Maybe future keyboards will have cute little emoji shortcut buttons?
