With BTS‘s 7th anniversary coming up June 13, Twitter has decided to do something special to celebrate.
Beginning June 13 and ending June 30, the social media platform will launch a total of nine emojis dedicated solely to BTS that will automatically be applied when specific hashtags are used.
Two emojis will be of the BTS logo and the ARMY logo and will appear when using the hashtags #BTS, 방탄소년단, #2020BTSFESTA, and #BTSARMY. Both the BTS and ARMY logos will be designed in black to show support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement, something that BTS has publicly advocated for and supported.
The remaining seven emojis will be the faces of the seven members and will appear when their stage names as hashtags. The member emojis will be applied using any of the following: #RM, #JIN, #진, #SUGA, #슈가, #jhope, #제이홉, #JIMIN, #지민, #V, #뷔, #JK, #정국, and #JungKook.
There is a lot of excitement for the anniversary emoji launch, both from fans and social media executives as all. Twitter’s Global K-Pop & K-Contents Partnership manager Kim Yeon Jung expressed that “I hope that ARMY can celebrate BTS’s anniversary in a different but united way through the use of these emojis.”
Meanwhile, BTS has been releasing exclusive content for their fans ahead of their anniversary celebration, including profile rewrites completed individually and by other members, several “family” photoshoots, and special music videos, including one for “We are Bulletproof: the Eternal” from their latest album Map of the Soul: 7.
Seven years together is a significant milestone for any musical artist, especially for a group like BTS. Their seven years together have brought them international fame and superstardom, but what matters most are the seven years they’ve been able to share with ARMY on this remarkable journey.
We send the warmest wishes to BTS for their seven incredible years together, and we hope for nothing but the best in each of their futures!
