Social media users were surprised to discover new emoji launched by Twitter and Periscope for Ramazan greetings.

The new emoji comes in the form of a crescent moon with a mosque.  But it will show up with a hashtag #Ramadan or #Ramazan, but not #Ramzan.

On Twitter’s official Middle East account, it had earlier tweeted: “To help people around the world celebrate the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, we’re launching several initiatives to make Twitter more fun and useful every day during Ramadan.”
