With Twitter’s new emoji tracking tool, advertisers can track how and when users post emojis and determine users’ emotional state. Depending on those feelings, they can deliver ads that best match their emotions at that time.

Advertisers say that this will allow them to deliver more relevant ads, but there are opposite concerns about consumer privacy. Watch this video to learn how advertisers are using this tool and how it changes the ads users see on Twitter.

When will companies stop vastly overestimating how much emojis mean to us? Like they’re cool and useful but emojis themselves have no value to me and seeing my ~fave emojis~ plastered onto something will never make me want to buy it

I use emojis regularly in iMessages with my wife and daughter, but somehow I trust Apple to safeguard my overall messages more than I do either Facebook or Twitter. In any case, I believe emotions have a complexity that may not be fully, or even accurately, captured by emojis we use. So I wonder how well emoji campaigns are working out for advertisers: are they getting a lift in their advertising impact or return? More importantly how well do they really understand the relationship between emotions and (buying) behavior, especially when other factors like cognition and personality play into our behavior as well?

When you think about the cuteness culture in Japan, the word “kawaii” comes to mind. The word, which signals more of a childlike sense of cute, came about in the 70s and it’s been used globally ever since. And Sanrio, the company that created Hello Kitty, has built an empire around the “kawaii” culture. Cuteness is a reaction. In Japan, the kawaii culture and concept is often linked to the country’s post-WWII years. The idea is that, because of its trauma and defeat, the country leaned into its vulnerability. Decades later— Sanrio’s new face of kawaii is an egg yolk with depression, questioning life.
