Fans of RM, J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Suga, V and Jungkook are loyal and supportive, especially when it comes to Twitter. In fact, BTS ARMY includes a special symbol in their Twitter names and even uses special hashtags to see BTS-specific emojis.
Here’s what we know about these artists, their custom Twitter emojis, and their massive social media presence.
Some members of BTS ARMY attach a “7”
; to their Twitter names
Fans of this boy band often dominate Twitter, creating trending topics on everything from dog photos of members to birthday parties.
With BTS releasing their album Soul Map: 7, some fans decided to represent the group by changing their names on Twitter to include the superscript “7” at the end.
Some celebrities also shared their support for the BTS album. The week the members visited The Late Late Show with James Corden, the host changed his Twitter name to “The Late Late Show With Joke Guy⁷”.

BTS first received a personalized Twitter emoji in 2016
BTS members first got their Twiter emoji in 2016, just three years after their debut. Users who tagged the boy band’s name saw a special bulletproof vest symbol, a reference to their Korean name Bangtan Sonyeondan, which translates to “bulletproof boy scout”.
When the guys first performed at the American Music Awards in 2017, fans received a new emoji. When he tweeted #BTSxAMAs, the brand new logo of the group appeared, which they still use today. This logo came with some rebranding for the group when they confirmed what BTS stand for – “Beyond the scene”.

BTS has some other emojis and hashtags used by fans on Twitter
In honor of BTS ARMY, these artists have unveiled another emoji specifically for Twitter. This was the fan-made logo, an inversion of the BTS logo, which appeared when users tweeted the hashtag, # LoveBTS10M. (This was in honor of the K-pop group that gained 10 million followers in 2017.)
Aside from their personal emojis, BTS fans use the purple heart to share their love for each other and for the band. This is mostly thanks to V, who created the phrase “I Purple You” as a way to describe his love for ARMY.
Hashtags and emojis aside, BTS are known for their powerful social media presence. They won the Billboard Music Award for Top Social Artist in 2017, 2018 and 2019. They also won the iHeartRadio Music Award for Best Fan Army in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. BTS Music, including their recently released album, Soul Map: 7, is available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
