In its ongoing reform to make Twitter more interactive and fun, the latest addition is emojis. Although just a handful, you have just seven different emojis to choose from in response to a message. This way, you can respond to a message without having to type actual words.

Worse still, you will also get a notification if the said person changes the emoji which is likely to create a notification situation here.

Furthermore, you will only be able to react with one emoji for a particular message. In other words, changing the emoji will only replace the previous one and all the participants will be notified of your change so be mindful of how you go about that.
You will be able to see how many times a particular emoji was used as the number will appear beside it. In some way, you will be able to measure the reaction you get and participants will also be able to see it too.
