# world emoji day
Ireland's most popular emojis have been revealed
Twitter has released a bunch of stars to celebrate World Emoji Day.

IT’S WORLD EMOJI day. Yes, welcome to 2016, when we have a whole day dedicated to emojis.


To honour this important occasion, Twitter released a heap of data about the world’s emoji usage.

What would you expect the most used in Ireland to be?

A snarl? A broken heart? The smiling poo emoji?


Our top three are the thumbs up, the see-no-evil monkey, and the a-ok hand


How do we read into this?

  1. We’re agreeable
  2. We find your stupid mistakes and regrets kinda sweet
  3. We are chill

Then there are the most used emojis worldwide, which again, we’re sad to see has no poo emoji included
