If You Tweet an Emoji at Google's Account, It Will Link to Local Search Results

Looking for a good nearby coffee spot?


Google wants to understand the language of emoji.

The tech giant today launched a fun feature that lets people tweet emojis at the brand's Twitter account. For each tweet people send, Google automatically sends back a tweet with a GIF and a link to local search results about the emoji. Tweeting a picture of a coffee cup, for example, results in a coffee GIF and a link to find a nearby coffee shop. And tweeting a picture of a Christmas tree will help you find nearby tree lots.
