Twitter Adds Bitcoin Emoji On Its Social Media Platform

CEO and co-Founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey announced the newly added Bitcoin (BTC) emoji on the social media platform.

On Feb. 2 Dorsey tweeted on the announcement while tagging Unicode, the consortium managing the character standard, in an apparent suggestion to do the same.

Dorsey’s apparent suggestion that the symbol be included in the Unicode text encoding standard was appreciated by the community, with Lightning Labs co-founder Elizabeth Stark joining the request.

After Twitter added the emoji to its platform, many cryptocurrency personalities test-tweeted it, including Tron (TRX) founder and Bittorrent CEO Justin Sun.

The official accounts of major cryptocurrency exchange Binance used the emoji and suggested that the cryptocurrency community should join in using the hashtag to get it trending on Twitter. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao also retweeted the message stating, “Let’s do this.”
