Ramadan officially starts tomorrow, and Twitter is launching new initiatives to celebrate the holy month. Launching today are three new emojis available in seven languages including English, Arabic, Hindi, Bengali, Turkish, Spanish and Bahasa. By using the hashtags, you can unlock either a crescent moon, a glass of yogurt or a lantern:

Earlier this year, Twitter has also launched an original show celebrating Ramadan. The show, titled #VimtoCreations, was produced by soft drink Vimto and Hia magazine and shows the different cooking celebrities hosted by key personalities.

Even Saudi public figure Ahmad Al Shugairi (@shugairi) announced that he will be sharing highlights of his film Al Madina on Twitter, where the movie focuses on the past and present state of the city of Madina.

Twitter also announced that just last month, there has been more than 10 million Tweets about Ramadan with Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt and the USA who are the countries that have the most Tweets. Even the symbol ﷺ that used for sending salutations to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in Arabic has already been sent 7 million times, with Saudi Arabia being the top country sending the Tweet.
