It’s that time of year again, the NFL season is officially back. With Thursday night’s kickoff fans will be tweeting up a storm about the games and their favorite teams. Twitter knows this, and has accommodated us all with new NFL team Twitter emojis.
Twitter Releases New NFL Emojis
According to CBS Sports, each NFL team has their very own Twitter emoji that will pop up in your tweet when you use a specific hashtag. Each team’s emoji is different, and so is their hashtag. Those of us on Twitter know that the social networking site has been stepping up their game with the hashtag emojis as of late.
Recently, they created some great Olympic emoji’s to coincide with the 2016 Rio Olympics. They’ve also celebrated Kobe’s retirement, the NBA finals, and popular TV shows such as “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” with special emojis.
NFL Season Starts On Thursday Night
Now NFL fans can get in on the fun. The list of hashtags that fans will need to use to see the emoji in their tweets were released on Wednesday, and fans are already trying them in out in preparation for the 2016-2017 NFL season, which starts on Thursday night with a Superbowl rematch between the Peyton Manning-less Denver Broncos and Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers. (But don’t expect to see Cam do his signature move, The Dab, as he’s announced he’s retired the celebration!)
