Emoticons for Twitter

I always tell one thing that I miss the most on Twitter is the support of emoticons. Every IM has emoticons, and I think Twitter is incomplete without them.

Since you can’t use graphics on Twitter, my friend Imran has found TwitterKeys, a website that has a compiled list of UTF-compatible characters that you can use as emoticons on Twitter.


Using them is very simple. Just double-click the emotiocn you want to use, and press Ctrl _ C to copy it. Press Ctrl + V to paste it where ever you want to display it. You are not restricted to use them just on Twitter. They can also be used on other sites and social networks like Facebook status messages.

I’d recommend you to bookmark the following link for future access.
