Emoji worth thousand words: Twitter study

  • The 'face with tears of joy' emoji -- that was declared the 'word of the year 2015' by Oxford Dictionaries -- was actually the most popular emoji used on Twitter, a study by the company revealed. Twitter analysed the top 10 emoji used for TV-related tweets between April 2014 and July 2015. This emoji was used in 24 percent of tweets that included emojis. The laughing face was followed by the heart eyes (12 percent), crying face (eight percent) and prayer hands (six percent), the study found. Source: IANS
