Are you a Star Wars fan? Are you a Twitter fan? Do you tweet about Star Wars? Well the social media giant may have just made your day with the release of its first batch of emojis, in partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm, to celebrate the forthcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Simply type #C3P0, #stormtrooper for the classic hero and villain of old, or #BB8 for the droid from the new movie, and they'll appear in your post by magic. There are more emojis on the way, Twitter promises, and we can be fairly sure plenty more Star Wars gimmicks both on and offline to come by the time of the film's December release.
