Twitters Year In Review 2015

“If it’s happening in the world, it’s happening on Twitter. Revisit the moments that made this year memorable.” – Twitter

It’s safe to say that 2015 could be called the year of the Emoji. In early November, for the first time ever, a pictograph was named The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year.

Not just any emoji though, ‘Face with tears of joy’ took the top spot after beating words such as Brexit, Ad Blocker, On Fleek, Lumbersexual and Dark Web amongst others.

With Twitter releasing their stats as part of the #YearOnTwitter, ‘Face with Tears of Joy’ has another reason to keep crying with laughter as it has been named the most used emoji. The emoji has been used a whopping 6.6 billion times on Twitter.
