The question that is everybody’s lips right now is: “What is Twitter up to?” Earlier this year, apparently Twitter decided to go a little haywire in order to impress its users. What did they do? They turned likes and favorite into little hears. Is Twitter Launching new emojis? This seems to be the most plausible course of action.
What does Twitter want to achieve by introducing the new emojis? Competition seems to be the answer. In early October, Facebook wanted to add a little fizz to the plain conversations, and decided to introduce the Facebook reaction system. It’s much simpler than it sounds. In a conversation, instead of using a plain emoji, you know, the grinning face, the boring smiley face, you may want to use an animated Facebook reaction. By using this kind of emoji, you will be able to better convey your feelings towards the speaker.
Is would seems that Twitter wants to do the same thing. Is Twitter launching new emojis? Maybe he is or maybe he is not. We cannot say for certain and neither can the developers. But, according to a Twitter veteran, by the name of _Ninja, it would seem that the rumors looming about are quite true.
_Ninja posted a couple of pictures all over the internet, depicting some sort of emoji periodic table. We can clearly see from the pictures that there are a couple of additions to twitter’s emoji collection. Among the collection posted by the revered internet ninja, we can see some new ones like the apish smiley face, following closely by the shocked face, the tear-to-my-eyes face and something totally new called the party noisemaker.
According to _Ninja’s tweets, it would seem that the new collection has approximately 100 new emojis, guaranteed to screw a smile on your face or to annoy your arch nemesis.
When confronted with the facts, Twitter didn’t say anything about launching new emojis. Instead, he went on about how the new system can help users to better express their feeling. It may very well be that Twitter’s initiative is awesome, but some users out there have something else in mind. For example, everybody is upset about the new heart system replacing the like and favorite button. Why? Imagine if someone posted a very sad tweet. What do you do? Say that you heart, aka like, their tweet?
Well, it seems that _Ninja’s statement was not entirely untrue. However, Twitter said to its fans that _Ninja got hold of developer version of Twitter and that he is capable of exploring some virtual possibilities.
