Happy Force Friday! Twitter Added X-Wing Emojis Because This Is the World We Live In Now

In a completely expected move, Twitter has added X-Wing emojis to its tweet arsenal. Remember when they first added a Stormtrooper, BB-8, 3P0, and R2 to their complement of emojis during the Star Wars Celebration Weekend? The world went bananas. B-a-n-a-n-a-s.

It’s simple to summon your own personal cutie X-Wing. Just write the #ForceFriday hashtag on any tweet, and there you go. #OscarIsaac also gets you one, so have fun with that, kids. Additionally, you can also hit up the following hashtags: #XWing, #StarWarsXWing, #PoeDameron, #PoesXWing, #Jakku, and #Resistance. That last one’s going to be tricky, I’ll tell you h-what.

Anyway, now you’ve got X-Wing emojis. Not long from now, you’ll probably be able to write out the entire plot to all the Star Wars movies completely in emoji.

Huh. Now that’s… that’s an idea. I’ll… uh. I’ll be right back.

Happy Force Friday, y’all!
