Twitter now supports emoji search, which we all absolutely needed

Emojipedia revealed on Twitter that users can now search for tweets and usernames with specific emoji. They chose to announce it by making fun of people using the fax machine emoji.

πŸ†• βœ¨ Twitter now supports emojis in πŸ” search. Here are people using the πŸ“  fax machine emoji for some reason

Naturally I had to search for every emoji available on my iPhone’s keyboard. I can’t say it adds much, unless you’re looking for fellow users of obscure emoji. You can search for extended emoji chains β€” and, surprisingly, you’ll almost always find something, if my searches are any indication. I randomly slid my finger over the keyboard and found a few gems.
Pink shirt emoji:

Who’s got their βš½οΈπŸ‘š on for #FootballShirtFriday?! Hoping to see lots on show at our game tonight!

Camel emoji:

C’mon everyone!! Let’s do the #HUMPDAY Race to the weekend!! πŸ’–πŸͺπŸ«πŸ’–

Today @perthmuseum with @CulturePK – FREE circus skills from 1-3pm & brick city LEGO too, go, it’s so cool! πŸ€Ήβ€β™‚️πŸŽͺπŸ€Ήβ€β™€οΈ

I can also attest that you’ll find a lot of spam tweets this way. For some reason, a specific breed of spam tweet uses a lot of emoji, no matter how obscure or unrelated to the subject matter.
