Twitter adds Bitcoin emoji

By Lawrence Gash

Latest show by Jack Dorsey of support for the cryptocurrency

Jack Dorsey, CEO and co-founder of Twitter, has again signalled his support for the world’s leading cryptocurrency by adding a Bitcoin emoji to the platform.

Now when a Twitter user writes either the Bitcoin or BTC hashtag, an image showing Bitcoin’s symbol will appear next to it.

Showing off the new feature, long-time Bitcoin-bull Dorsey changed the bio for his Twitter account with 4.3 million followers simply to “#bitcoin” with the adjoining symbol.

Dorsey also tagged Unicode, the world standard for text and emojis seemingly suggesting they do the same:

A number of well-known figures, such as TRON’s CEO Justin Sun and the Lightning Network’s Elizabeth Stark, welcomed the development.

This is only the latest in a stream of stories where Dorsey has championed Bitcoin and its underlying blockchain technology.

In 2019 he revealed that he spent $10k a week on Bitcoin and announced Bluesky, a new research team that will develop open and decentralised technical standards for social media platforms.

In January one of Dorsey’s other successful ventures, Square, won an American patent for a new network that will facilitate crypto-to-fiat transactions.

By mid-afternoon trading BTC stands at $9301.
