THE TACO EMOJI ENGINE

How do you make Taco Bell synonymous with the long-awaited taco emoji?
Make it super fun to tweet it @TacoBell like a bajillion times.

The Taco Emoji Engine is an entirely new interactive platform we built directly into Twitter for maximum addictive simplicity. (To be clear: this is a capability we CREATED with Twitter. It did not exist until we had this idea.)

And the idea was crazy simple. Just tweet the taco emoji + literally any other emoji for an instant, custom response.

We created custom content for all possible 1294 combinations but these are a select (very) few of my favorites.
