Twitter now has State of Origin emojis

Peter Terlato 26 May 2016 NEWS


Cockroaches and cane toads will be flooding Twitter today.

Rugby League fans on Twitter can finally show their true colours with individual state emojis to represent their team.

Twitter Australia today released two new emojis to help users support either NSW or Queensland ahead of Game 1 next week.

You can check them out in the tweet below.

If you're a Queenslander, tweet the new cane toad emoji with #QLDER or if you're a die-hard NSW fan tag #uptheblues and you'll get the cockroach.

The new emojis follow last week's addition of a green and gold ballot box emoji in lieu of the upcoming Australian election.

Twitter's also been busy announcing some major changes that will impact the way in which everyone tweets. Read Angus Kidman's Findings column to learn how these alterations will affect your future tweets.

Earlier this month we unearthed the truth about player eligibility in the legendary Origin series, revealing Queensland's 2016 team contains four players not born in the sunshine state, three of them actually from NSW.

NSW poached two interstate players, however, neither of them are from Queensland.

Last week we compared the year-to-date stats of 13 different potential NSW halves pairings to see who was the most in-form choice for State of Origin 2016.

According to our analysis, the official selected pairing of James Maloney and debutant Adam Reynolds was the sixth best combination for the NSW team.
