Tweeting the hashtags #2018MAMA or #MAMA10 will generate a flame shaped emoji, symbolising the fans' passion and enthusiasm for their favourite artistes/bands. Tweeting #LikeMAMA will generate a second emoji, the MAMA logo in the shape of heart, to express the love from Kpop fans. Lastly, a third emoji will be of a red carpet, appearing when fans Tweet #MAMARedCarpet. Kpop fans around the world can use any of these hashtags to see and join the 2018 MAMA conversation on Twitter right now.
