With ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ almost here and the Star Wars Celebration on right now, Twitter’s introduced three custom Star Wars emoji:

The third emoji is of BB-8, the new rolling droid who popped up in the Force Awakens trailer. You also get a little BB8 head if you add the #forceawakens hashtag to your tweet which suggest the little fella’s got a big role to play.
Using the #SWCA hashtag also gets you C3-PO.
