How turning yourself into an emoji works.
Making yourself into an emoji is quite easy, if you are using Twitter on your cellphone.
Click on the link on the tweet, and it will redirect to your phone's camera via Facebook's Story feature. Screenshot the emoji immediately, as soon as it pops up.
Make sure you are using the front camera and move around a bit. It does look silly if you are doing this in a public space, but it is an effective way of getting the emojis to pop up, if sitting still fails.
It was fun while it lasted. Until the next World Emoji day.
