According to the most tweeted emoji on the social network, one would suggest the social network’s a pretty happy place to be.
The laughing/crying emoji is the most used, followed by the hearts as eyes icon. Following that though is the crying waterfalls emoji — which could symbolise both tears of joy, or a complete emotional breakdown.
As for food, Pizza, cake, peaches, beer and cherries are the most tweeted food emoji.
According to a release, Twitter sees almost 250-million emoji sent on its network per month. In terms of a yearly figure, that amounts to 3.2-billion.
