Here’s what we know about these artists, their personalized Twitter emojis, and their massive social media presence.
Some BTS ARMY members attach a “7” to their Twitter name
Fans of the boy band often dominate Twitter, creating trending topics on everything from photos of members’ dogs to birthday celebrations.
With BTS released their album Soul Card: 7, some fans decided to represent the group by changing their Twitter names to include the “7” in the superscript at the end.
Even some celebrities have shared their support for BTS’s album. The week the members visited The Late Late Show avec James Corden, the host changed her Twitter name to “The Late Late Show With Joke Guy⁷”.

BTS first received a personalized Twitter emoji in 2016
BTS members first received their own Twiter emoji in 2016, just three years after their debut. Users who hashtagged the name of the boy group saw a special bulletproof vest symbol, a reference to their Korean name Bangtan Sonyeondan, which translates to “bulletproof scouts”.
When the boys first performed at the American Music Awards in 2017, fans got a new emoji. During the #BTSxAMAs tweets, the band’s brand new logo, which they still use today, appeared. This logo came with a bit of rebranding for the group when they confirmed what BTS stands for – “Beyond the Stage”.

BTS has a few other emojis and hashtags used by fans on Twitter
In honor of the BTS ARMY, these artists released another emoji especially for Twitter. This was the logo created for fans, a reversal of the BTS logo, which appeared when users tweeted the hashtag, # LoveBTS10M. (It was in honor of the K-pop group who had gained 10 million subscribers in 2017.)
In addition to their personal emoji, BTS fans use the purple heart to share their love for each other and the group. This is mainly thanks to V, who coined the phrase “I Purple You” to describe his love for ARMY.
Hashtag and emojis aside, BTS is known for its powerful social media presence. They won the Billboard Music Award for Best Social Artist in 2017, 2018, and 2019. They also won the iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Fan Army in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Soul Card: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
