Twitter celebrated Korean boy group Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) with a special emoji.

BTS' official Twitter account hit 10 million followers on November 13, less that five years since their first tweet.

The group announced its official Twitter account in December 17, 2012, months before its official debut on June 12, 2013.

To celebrate this milestone, fans who will tweet the hashtag #LoveBTS10M will activate a special emoji inspired by the group's official fan club's logo.

Each of the seven members of BTS posted their selfies and thank-you messages throughout the day, capping it off with a group message.

The #LoveBTS10M hashtag trended worldwide right after the special emoji was launched. 

BTS released its latest album in September. Earlier this month, the group joined forces with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to launch their own anti-violence campaign.
