Breaking News: There Are #Porg Emojis on Twitter, and #BB8 and #BB9E Too

Stop the presses! Twitter's latest pop culture emojis have been revealed ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it's all about the porgs, baby!

The shocking news was broken by the official Star Wars account on Twitter:

Do you really need to ask that question, Star Wars Twitter? Of course, we're going to use the porgs, the adorable penguin-like alien creatures that have captured the hearts of Star Wars fandom even before the movie has hit theaters!

We here at Bleeding Cool love porgs. Seriously, it's an official company policy, which is why we are using the word "porgs" as often as possible in this article. Well, that, and for the SEO. And we know you love porgs too.

If you want to make use of the porg emoji in your tweets — or the other ones, we guess — all you have to do is use the appropriate hashtag and the cute little thing will magically appear in your tweets, like this:

Hopefully, this can sate your porg cravings until Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, at which point you'll have more porgs than you can shake a light saber at!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
