This infographic was recently put together by Twitter to show the most-tweeted emojis from around the world. Although it doesn’t it compile data from every country, it’s still interesting to see how it differs from country to country. Take a look below:
Social Media finds another way to Stalk you
According to a recent report, 74 percent of people in the U.S. regularly use emojis. They have become a daily part of social media users’ lives and marketers are starting to take notice. Twitter has just announced it will start using “emoji-based” targeting, which will be used to help advertisers to target consumers who tweet certain emojis.
This Twitter account, @CinemaPalettes, actually takes popular (and I suppose unpopular) films and breaks down their color palettes. It’s an interesting take on the tones used to give movies a certain vibe.

To help you show love for your favorite NBA All-Star, the NBA created these emojis for Twitter. All you have to do is tweet a hashtag with the player’s first and last name, and it will automatically insert the emoji representing that player. They even made emojis for the announcers. I think Shaq and Charles Barkley have the best ones.
Shortly after the news of Twitter’s 10,000 character update, they have decided to add a new “Best Tweets” feature that will give preference to accounts you’re more likely to care about. Those tweets will be the first ones to appear at the top of your timeline, with the regularly reverse chronologically ordered tweets appearing after.
Unlike the 10K character update, this will be a feature you can turn on only if you want to. If you want to keep things the way they are, it seems like for now there is no issues with that.
It seems like Twitter is trying out some new things to keep people interested and using the app. However, there hasn’t been any indication of them adding a feature to “edit” tweets, which is what everyone seems to really want.
