The people of France and Italy live up to their romantic stereotypes, the Spanish prefer to flex their muscles while the British and Americans mainly seem to be weary.
This is the view of the world that appears when looking at the most popular emojis that are used on Twitter in different countries.
The list was compiled ahead of World Emoji Day this Sunday, and seems to challenge some stereotypes while confirming others about different nations.
The unquellable positivity of Americans, for example, seems to be lacking from their use of emojis as they seem to most often use the weary face icon.
Turkey, by comparison, favours a more classic smiley face.
France and Italy most often use heart shaped emojis related to love – perhaps not surprising for countries that are most commonly regarded as the most romantic in the world.
Surprisingly, however, the Japanese also seem to like using a beating heart emoji that is often used to denote love.
Saudi Arabia uses a rather bizarre blue heart, which could be seen as rather cold hearted. South Koreans seem to prefer a symbol of kissing lips.
In Brazil, Colombia and Argentina, countries known for their love of rhythm, people favour musical notes..
’World Emoji Day’ has been designated as 17 July because the date famously features on the ’Calendar’ emoji in iOS operating systems.
To celebrate the day, Twitter analysed how emojis are used around the world.
Somewhat expectedly, Australians are optimistic Tweeters, choosing the thumbs up emoji. Perhaps more surprisingly, the Germans also use the symbol, despite often being characterised as somewhat serious.
South Africans are keen on putting their hands in the air and the Spanish like to show off their arm muscles.
While people in India and Mexico are more religious or spiritual, favouring the ’person with folded hands’.
In May last year, emoji was named as the world’s fastest growing language.
Earlier this week, Google revealed a series of new emojis in efforts to better embrace the diversity of its many users.
The new emojis include 11 new professions, from rock star to scientist, each available in both male and female, and across all skin colours.
In addition to this, 33 existing emojis are set to be updated to include a version for both genders.
