Twitter has introduced new Star Wars emojis to coincide with the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. The emojis come courtesy of a collaboration between Disney and Lucasfilm, and allow fans to not only express their love for the films, but also announce themselves as dedicated members of the fandom.
The Star Wars emojis are easily accessed by typing in a hashtag for each character. Currently, there are three unlocked emojis available for use, but more have been promised. Fans need only to follow @StarWars to learn about the release of new characters, both old and new, in the future.
The Star Wars emojis are a great attempt on behalf of the social media platform to connect fans on a deeper level.
