Twitter wishes India #HappyDiwali in a unique way


Yesterday, Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor officially launched the #HappyDiwali emoji on Twitter. This emoji of a diya will be displayed with the hashtag #HappyDiwali.

Unveiling the latest emoji, Twitter is adding more lights and making their platform shine brighter than ever with #HappyDiwali wishes.

The emoji was launched by Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor, popular actors of the Indian film industry and active Twitter celebrities. Their movie Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is releasing this Diwali and so this emoji is a treat for all their fans as well.  

Twitter’s Diwali Twitter also announced a fun and engaging activity. The pictures that will be posted with the hashtag #HappyDiwali will be featured in Diya shaped mosaic. It will be revealed on 12th November 2015 at their microsite, and the users can scroll through and find their picture amongst the thousand others who participated. Rishi Jaitly, Twitter vice president of media, Asia-Pacific, The Middle East and North Africa said, “This Diwali, Twitter is the go-to platform where people from across the world can engage in conversations about their celebrations, experiences and moments in real time. The #HappyDiwali emoji is a delightful, colourful way to unite Indians all over the world and celebrate the festival of lights together on Twitter,” 

Adding a Diwali emoji for the country to celebrate the festival on their micro-blogging site, Twitter is probably trying to become more user-friendly with more lights this time.
