Emoji Takeover!

In recent years social media has become overwhelmed with Emoji characters – from smiley faces, to cats, to pizza slices, hearts and everything in between.

Earlier this year Coca-Cola became the first international brand to register domain names using emoticons, apparently registering domains in every emoji that represents happiness!

This week Domino’s has announced that you can place and order just by tweeting them a pizza slice emoji. You will need to register on their website with payment details, your twitter username and regular order. Currently it is only available to customers in America, but the pizza chain has plans to roll out the ‘tweet to order’ service to further countries soon.

Instagram research has recently shown the increase of Emoji’s. Within a month of iOS launching the emoji keyboard, 10% of the captions and comments on the platform contained at least one character. Now, less than four years later nearly 40% is represented by emoji’s, with many having replaced phrases and text shortners such as LOL!
