Have you ever seen those icons on Twitter? You know the ones, a plane, heart, star sign etc. Well there are several ways of adding these to your tweets when your on Twitter, but there is a great Chrome Extension which will give you a brilliant way of adding these Twitter Symbols when you are Tweeting.
Twitter Symbols will add an extra button next to the Tweet button on the Twitter website and will open an on-screen box allowing you to click on a Twitter Symbol to add to your tweet.
So all you have to do is click on the button and the selection box will open up, then you can simply add what you want to make your tweet a little different.
One thing I have noticed when using these Twitter Symbols though, is not all of them will be displayed on Tweetdeck, even with the option for International font/Twitterkey selected in Tweetdecks setting, but they do seem to work on Twitter itself
So by using the Twitter Symbols you can tweet a custom tweet like I have below:
?ing the ? we've had today, shame that now we've ended having to use a ? on the odd occasion!

If you are looking for a way of using these Twitter Symbols and you are using Chrome then this is certainly a useful extension to use and ideal for any Twitter user
