TwitterKeys allows me to express my inner ☃ ❥♘

Twitter redesigned some stuff. Moved tabs to the side and opened up the design. Personally I like it. The best new ‘tweek’ is the ability to reply to a Direct Message just by clicking a small mail icon on the right-hand side of the message you’d like to reply to.

better DM controls-1

Also, you can spice up your tweets or express the complexity of your emotions with TwitterKeys by the guys at The Next Web, i.e. ❉ ❥ ♘. It’s nothing complicated, just a pop up browser bookmarket of a symbol library where you copy and paste little unicode symbols anywhere, like on Twitter, Facebook or right here, on your blog: ☃.

Or just like, double click & copy n paste these puppies below:

What’s your favourite TwitterKeys symbol?

    I’ve got mixed feelings about the new redesign ☢

    Oh well, I use twitterific more than the website anyway.

    I like the new layout as it is easy on the eyes and you don’t have to search for things ~ which is my number one pet peeve with websites.

    ♥ you for mentioning and ☛ to TwitterKeys! Unfortunately not all characters from Character Pallette on Mac & Character Map on Windows work on all browsers. You can see that demonstrated in the first comment where all I see is weird unicode and other people only see a white cube: ಠ

    TwitterKeys is a sub-selection of characters that seem to ✔ fine on all browsers and platforms.

    The safer bet! ☺

    Whoops. ;)

    That was supposed to look like this. It’s a Unicode Character ‘KANNADA LETTER TTHA’ followed by an underscore and another ‘KANNADA LETTER TTHA’ to make a grumpy-looking smiley/emoticon/whatever you want to call it.

    Sort of related: if you’re using an iPhone and you’re one of the six people who don’t have emoji enabled, there’s a cool little webapp called Glyphboard ( that installs an icon on your phone and gives you a page or two of symbols that you can copy and paste into a message. Cheers ☮
