Eager Apple fans liking tweets with the #AppleEvent hashtag have been treated a special surprise, in the form of an animation on the ‘like’ icon
The moment that Apple fans have been waiting for is finally almost here, as Apple will host its annual event this afternoon.
The event, called ‘Time Flies’, will begin at 18:00 BST today, and could see Apple launch a range of exciting products – most notably the iPhone 12.
In the build-up to the event, the #AppleEvent hashtag has been trending on Twitter.
And eager Apple fans liking these tweets have been treated a special surprise, in the form of an animation on the ‘like’ icon.
While Twitter usually just shows you a dark pink heart when you like a tweet, if you like a tweet with the #AppleEvent hashtag included, you’ll find that the ‘like’ icon outlines in blue, then pink, before turning dark pink.
This is a nod to Apple’s logo for the event, which also features a blue looping design.
Unsurprisingly, the special animation is only available on the iOS Twitter app, so desktop and Android users won’t be able to see it.
