Taylor Swift nabs Twitter’s first celebrity custom emoji #BadBloodMusicVideo

Taylor Swift nabs Twitter’s first celebrity custom emoji #BadBloodMusicVideo

Whether she’s trademarking her lyrics or inspiring a custom iOS keyboard, Taylor Swift has a knack for being on the cusp of tech trends.

Her latest coup is becoming the first celebrity to get a custom Twitter hashflag, introduced in advance of her heavily-trailed Bad Blood music video.

Add #BadBloodMusicVideo to a tweet and you’ll automatically get a custom emoji of a Bandaid with a bullet hole through it.


Sadly, the little graphic only appears to show up in the official Twitter app right now and not in third-party options, or, oddly the Web interface. Still, enjoy the novelty Swifties.
