This Budweiser Twitter Emoji for #GiveADamn Costs $1 Million

Twitter is selling custom emojis at $1 million according to sources. Budweiser bought one of them for a Super Bowl 50 ad campaign.

See how Twitter makes boatloads of cash from custom emojis. Anheuser-Busch released today the first Budweiser Super Bowl 50 ad starring Helen Mirren. The commercial is aimed at ending drunk driving. Helen Mirren has clear words for what she thinks people are who drive drunk, and the Dame is right. 

Anheuser-Busch supports the cause donating $1 every time the hashtag #GivaADamn is used this week until Super Bowl Sunday. The brewer is donating up to $1 million. We already rang up the tally by putting this hashtag in the title of the story about it earlier. Oh we did it again in this story. Budweiser donates up to $1 million to safe ride home programs in 2016. We gladly help with that.

The brewer decided to pay also $1 million for the custom emoji to Twitter that appears when the hashtag #GiveADamn.

At least this is what sources say of Adweek say. The custom emojis are reserved for Twitter's biggest advertising customers. Not every brand can have these. I am not sure if $1 million is worth the emoji that Twitter displays for Budweiser's #GiveADamn. See above. I like the golden football that appears when you put the hashtag #SB50 in a Tweet.

These custom emojis are apparently part of larger packages that include Promoted Trends, Promoted Moments and Promoted Tweets.
