Twitter introduces 30 player emojis to celebrate IPL


It looks like emojis will never run out of fashion. Twitter has now teamed up with the Indian Premier League (IPL) to come up with a set of 30 emojis of popular IPL players. So, fans can now tweet these about the current IPL games and their favourite players using these emojis.

This is how it works: users will need to enter a hashtag before the player’s name and the emoji will then show up on the screen. For example, if you want to add MS Dhoni to your Tweet, you need to type in #MSDhoni and the player’s emoji will show up on your Twitter. The company has also disclosed that it will be coming up with a special ‘exclusive’ emoji for the 10th season when fans tweet with #IPL.

Aneesh Madani, Head of Sports Partnerships, India and South East Asia, Twitter said,

Twitter is the best place to see what’s happening in your world right now, and we are the live connection to cricket’s culture. Over the last decade, there have been over 84 million tweets related to the IPL and the league has been one of our most innovative global sports partners. We are thrilled to launch these special Twitter emojis with IPL for the historic tenth season.
