  • sweets and chocolate
  • family time
  • Preparation of the Easter meal

The emoji

Twitter also suggests using emojis, a must in digital communication. They are vectors of emotions and part of a process of building and strengthening connections to your goals. They inspire engagement in your audience and give your writing real meaning by activating the emotional part of the brain.

The most used Easter emojis in the last year include:

  • Rabbit Face Emoji 🐰
  • The hatching chick emoji 🐣
  • Egg Emoji 🥚

  • Laughing Face Emoji 😂

Just avoid repeating the same emoji over and over as it can annoy users.
