How do people use emoticons on Twitter?

Many people ask meΒ “how canΒ I addΒ emoticonsΒ to my tweets?”. Well here is how.

If you’re a regular Twitter user then you’ve most likely seen emoticons like these before:

πŸ˜„ πŸ˜ƒ 😊 πŸ˜‰ 😍 😘 😚 😜 😝 😳 πŸ‘‚ πŸ‘€ πŸ‘ƒ πŸ‘… πŸ‘„

🐢 🐺 🐱 🐭 🐹 🐰 🐸 🐯 πŸ†• πŸ†™ πŸ†’ πŸ†“ β›„ πŸ’€ πŸ‘½ πŸ’©
