Twitter Creates Customized “GOAT” Emoji For Simone Biles—Making Her The First Olympian To Ever Obtain One
Roommates, after waiting what seems like forever, fans finally get to see Simone Biles compete at the Tokyo Olympics—and to celebrate her being the GOAT, Twitter just created a special emoji in her honor. This means that Simone Biles is now the first-ever Olympian to receive their own emoji as the Olympics are officially underway!
As the world gathers to watch record-breaking multiple gold-winning gymnast Simone Biles add to her accomplishments during the Tokyo Olympics, popular social media platform Twitter decided to give her the ultimate honor and distinguish her from the rest of the Olympians.
During the duration of the Tokyo Olympics, whenever anyone tweets #Simone or #SimoneBiles her very own emoji will appear…and it’s none other than a goat dressed in a leotard, perfectly honoring Simone’s GOAT status as the world’s greatest female athlete.
Speaking about giving Simone her own emoji, Twitter stated that the honor is meant to recognize Biles’s “legacy, achievements and epic usage of the platform.”
Twitter also revealed that so far this year, Simone was the second-most talked about Olympic athlete on the social media platform, behind only Japanese swimmer Rikako Ikee.
After making history once again at the U.S Gymnastics championships, Simone Biles is set to put on a historic performance at the Tokyo Olympics. During her recent practice sessions, she absolutely nailed her signature double-pike move on the balance beam that has been deemed so difficult and dangerous that other gymnasts are forbidden to try it.
