What does the twinkle emoji mean on TikTok?
The sparkle emoji no longer stands for stars in the sky. It can actually mean a lot more.
It can be used to represent material items like glitter or sparkling jewelry, but the emoticon evolved to express actual feelings.
Sparkle emoji users allow excitement, love, amazement, and magic to be displayed.
The connotation of the emoji has become versatile through its use in texting, snapping, tweeting, etc.
Where did the glitter emoji come from?
Before emoticons, the asterisk was often used to symbolize literal stars and could even be shaped into a star face (* o *).
Slowly, emoticons took over the use of asterisks and replaced them with images that could more closely resemble real emotions such as the crying emoji or the heart-eye emoji.
The sparkle emoji was first used to represent the stars or the literal word “shine” while it is used today to communicate emotions.

How do TikToker use the Sparkle Emoji?
TikTokers are not stranger emoticons.
They’re often the creators of their own slang – made up of words, emojis, or both.
The sparkle emoji has become a method of indicating excitement and / or adding emphasis to a specific word, emotion, or other emoji.
For example, if a user wanted to highlight the name of a brand they had on their TikTok video, they could write “✨Zara✨” or “✨Shein✨”.
A user could also use the twinkle emoji to express the feeling, “excited✨”.
Certain TikTokers can even ironically use the twinkle emoji to indicate its overuse and occasional abuse.
