How to Add Special Characters to Your Tweets
Want to jazz up your tweets with some Twitter symbols? These twitter tools can help add special characters to your tweets.
Did you know that Twitter accepts more than just basic text in your tweets? Twitter is UTF8 compatible so instead of tweeting “I love your company” you could just as well use “I ♥ your company”.
How about this one to save as many of your 140 characters as possible:
“I’m going ☎ her to ✔ if she got my ✉”
Why Use Them?
While special characters can be fun to use on a personal level, be sure not to over-use them for your business. It may be viewed as unprofessional in certain business arenas.
But used sparingly and occasionally, it can be a great way to get a tweet to stand out from the rest.
