Twitter adds giant emoji to Direct Messages

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

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

…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.
