Twitter is the best place to see what’s happening in the world of entertainment and the platform continues to delight fans with new ways of engaging with their favourite films and movie stars. In association with Excel Entertainment (@excelmovies), Twitter launched today a special emoji for the Gold. In addition to the emoji, Twitter also hosted an exclusive Q&A session with Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) today for his upcoming release, that’s set to hit the theatres this Independence Day.
Starting today, people in India and across the globe can join the conversation around the film by simply Tweeting with #GoldMovie or #Gold2018 to use the specially designed emoji curated by Twitter. The emoji appears next to the hashtag in the Tweet and is inspired by India’s first Olympic gold medal. It will be active until 16th August 2018.
According to Keya Madhvani Singh, Head of Entertainment Partnerships, Twitter India, “Twitter is the best and fastest place to know what’s happening in the world of entertainment.
