Which Emojis Are Canadians Tweeting With the Most?

🤔 🤔 🤔 🤔 🤔

Happy World Emoji Day! To celebrate, Twitter released info about what emojis are most popular among Canadians—and the results are surprising to say the least.

Considering over 250 million emojis are sent out every month on Twitter—totalling to approximately 3.2 billion emojis being used per year—it’s interesting to see which ones made the cut, both in Canada and worldwide.

Between the top 10 most used food, animal and sport emojis, Canadians apparently love to laugh until they cry, eat pizza, monkey around and shoot hoops, with further research revealing even more interesting tidbits. The dog emoji was used 11% more than the cat emoji while the pizza emoji was used more than the beer and wine emojis combined. Additionally, the basketball emoji was used 8% more than the hockey stick emoji, which is shocking considering hockey is our highly publicized national sport.
