What your hot NFL take really needs is a Twitter emoji
To make your tweet more visible while also making it both more fun and succinct, the NFL has unveiled a set of Twitter emojis for every team. Use the designated hashtag for your favorite team and, boom, the team's logo appears as an emoji like magic. #Broncos #KeepPounding#Patriots #BeRedSeeRed#HereWeGo #WeAre12#Chiefs #GoPackGo NFL @Twitter emojis are here! pic.twitter.com/KjJweHJM7H -- NFL (@NFL) September 7, 2016 CLEVELAND, Ohio -- With the NFL season kickoff on Thursday, it's just about time to "hut, hut, tweet!" NFL unveiled a set of Twitter emojis for this season.Twitter screenshot  And to make your tweet more visible while also making it both more fun and succinct, the NFL has unveiled a set of Twitter emojis for every team. Use the designated hashtag for your favorite team and, boom, the team's logo appears as an emoji like magic. For example, when posting about the Browns, use #DawgPound. The hashtag for their opponent on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles, is #FlyEaglesFly. It's the #DawgPound vs. #FlyEaglesFly this Sunday. Who ya got? -- joey morona (@joeyjoe) September 7, 2016 The emoji-generating hashtag for some teams is obvious, like #Broncos, #Chiefs or #Chargers. Some are more obscure, at least for fans in other cities. For example #Skol is used for the Vikings ("Skol, Vikings" is the team's fight song). Washington's #HTTR is short for "Hail to the Redskins." #JetUp, #FinUp and #TitanUp are self-explanatory and fun. Two of the most inexplicable are Carolina's #KeepPounding and Tampa Bay's #SeigeTheDay, which sounds like the name of a Steven Seagal movie. The @NFL and @Twitter release new emojis for all 32 teams. @TwitterSports#RiseUp #DawgPound #FinsUp #FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/LCKgogtfwc -- Good Morning America (@GMA) September 7, 2016
