Attention Star Wars fans everywhere: you can now express your love for the saga on Twitter via emoji!
Twitter unveiled a variety of #StarWarsEmojis that work exclusively on its platform for fans to show their passion through fun characters.
According to Twitter’s blog, the company has teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm in anticipation of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Three emojis were debuted Thursday in honor of the Star Wars Celebration happening in Anaheim this weekend, with more to come.
Here’s how it works: Twitter users can use the specific hashtags that represent the emoji they want. Typing #C3P0 will attach an emoji icon of C3P0 and the same goes for #Stormtrooper and #BB8. All three are characters in the upcoming film.
The icons will appear on the end of the hashtag, embedded within the tweet, notes the site.
As Mashable points out, the characters only show up on Twitter.com and official Twitter mobile apps and not on third-party platforms like Tweetdeck.
So what other Star Wars characters will be transformed into an emoji? Twitter says to follow @StarWars for more updates.
So get tweeting, and may the force be with you! Make sure to follow us @Kearth101!
