Twitter adds giant emoji to Direct Messages

Twitter adds giant emoji to Direct Messages

Twitter just unveiled a quirky new feature for direct messages:  you can now send super-sized emoji.

…And that’s it really. You can’t change the size or dynamically make them larger or smaller.

They also are still regular tiny emoji if adjacent to text – the larger size only shows up when sending them independently.

Still, people love their emoji. The new size is available now, and shows up on both mobile apps and the Web.
