Judging brands’ #WorldEmojiDay tweets … with emojis
It’s #WorldEmojiDay and in case you were worried that brands didn’t notice, fear not: they have.
Today’s international holiday is in celebration of the calendar emoji on Apple iOS, which displays July 17 — hey, that’s today!
Topsy measures 35,000 tweets with the hashtag #WorldEmojiDay, with most of them coming from brands. Just kidding, but scrolling through the hashtag on Twitter shows that companies’ social media teams are doing their best to be relatable. Brands are people too.
So we figured it would only be appropriate if we graded individual brand tweets with an emoji of our reaction:
