Twitter Gains Unique 'Like' Animation for Apple Event

Twitter has today added a unique "like" animation for Apple's "Hi, Speed" event that is to take place later today.

The brief animation reflects the concentric circles used on the artwork and graphics used to promote the Apple event. The circles also seem to be present on the wallpapers from leaked images of the iPhone 12.

This is the second time Apple has used a unique Twitter "like" animation to promote an event, with the first occasion being for the "Time Flies" event last month.

Apple also has used a custom Twitter hashtag with its logo, just as it did for the "Time Flies" event last month, for the "Hi, Speed" event today.

For Christmas, Apple also intends on giving you a pair of socks.

Are these custom hashtags and emotes only available to businesses or brands? Or is it any user who ponies up enough money (million$)?

I just find the whole thing interesting, as it reminds me of pay-to-win games and cash shops. But hey, at least Twitter finally figured out how to make money. :)

This is pretty cool. Just imagine if Twitter gave you a choice of how the like button looks.

I am liking these custom emojis next to the hashtags.

Looks rather adult IMO. Not that I would know.

All these marketing gimmicks, and when it comes to the actual product what do we get? Another identical iteration of an iteration of an iteration, showered in forced enthusiasm and scripted marketing.
That’s extreme. A 5nm SoC proves that Apple is pushing the iPhone beyond iteration.
