Twitter Adds Bitcoin Emoji, Jack Dorsey Suggests Unicode Does the Same

Not to mention, many said that it legitimizes Bitcoin as a bona fide asset, for each large trend on Twitter has its own emoji, such as the Andrew Yang presidential campaign or the Me Too movement.

Will other top social media platforms follow?

Dorsey's tweet showed that, now, whenever a Twitter user writes the Bitcoin or BTC hashtag, an image showing its symbol appears next to it. The crypto community has rejoiced.

Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey, isn't stopping at only Twitter having the Bitcoin emoji.

It's to be noted that Bitcoin's Unicode was approved way back in 2017, and the latest developments could be just a continuation of the community's support for the cryptocurrency.

Immediately after the emoji was unveiled, members of the crypto community went all-in on its use.

Note that in this tweet, the Twitter CEO has tagged the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit organization based in Mountain View, California, the objective of which is "to maintain and publish the Unicode Standard which was developed with the intention of replacing existing character encoding schemes which are limited in size and scope, and are incompatible with multilingual environments".

After more than 2,800 retweets, Twitter has finally done it. Jack Dorsey and his team have honored the request of the people and released a Bitcoin Emoji.
