Brands have hit peak emoji mania. This morning, the hashtag #NewMeaningsforEmojis started trending nationally on Twitter, and brands were quick to weigh in with their takes on the small digital icons.
Charmin is well-known for its social potty humor, so it's no surprise that its social team posted an image mashing up poo, a bear and a smiley face to sum up its take on emojis.
