We want Twitter to be fun and exciting to use. That’s why today you’ll see an animation for #Halloween ❤️s! 🎃🤗

We had a lot of fun making these and I thought it would be cool to share some of the animation’s history...👇
This is where we started a few years ago, with a simple burst for favs... 🌟
That never shipped, but soon after that we started exploring new animations for the heart...some got pretty wild ❤️✨😜
This is the version that shipped and is what you’ll see when you like a Tweet in all the Twitter apps
A bit later, on Twitter’s 10 year anniversary, we made a “confetti explosion” heart that was on all Tweets for only 24 hours ❤️🎉
And that brings us to today! We wanted to try something different by having a special animation only on Tweets with Halloween hashtags (#Halloween, #Halloween2018, #TrickOrTreat) 👻
The animation was created in After Effects, then we create a layer from each frame. We take those individual frames and make it a sprite image
It’s great to see people having fun with it. Let us know what you think!

A small group of very talented and dedicated people have made these magic little details come to life over the years 🙏 @bwdds @wwayneee @sofo @krakendev @AlexKGwyn @maddy_bayer @smeger @sf_avi @iamdavidhart and Javier Saldeña
If I missed anyone I’m sorry and thank you!! 🙌🙌🙌
