Global superstars BTS (@BTS_twt) will be celebrating their 7th anniversary on 13 June with a range of content expected to be released on Twitter, titled #2020BTSFESTA. Twitter will add to the festivities by launching BTS emojis.
The emojis will be automatically generated when people on Twitter use hashtags related to the group or anniversary. Also, the emojis that will be used for hashtags such as #BTS, #2020BTSFESTA, and #BTSARMY are designed in black to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement – a change in style from the purple emojis and ‘7’ logo used for their last album release.
Through this opportunity, BTS will become the first K-Pop group to receive their own face emojis for each member of the team. The emojis are available in both Korean and English hashtags from 13 June until 30 June, 2020 KST.
The list of hashtags that will generate BTS emojis:
Yeon Jeong Kim, Head of the Global Kpop & K-content Partnerships at Twitter said, “Twitter is the best place for Kpop fans to see what’s happening and participate in trending conversations. We are excited to celebrate BTS’ 7th anniversary, and help ARMY interact with fellow fans as well as BTS members through a special feature and improved experience.”
