Emotes are used across the entirety of the Twitch platform.
They are a way of fans connecting, even when we’re strangers, when we’re all spamming ‘PogChamp’ in the chat.
They help tell the collective story of Twitch, with each emote having a unique history and backstory.
All together, emotes are used millions of times on the platform each day
and are a shared identity for members of the entire Twitch community.

For a global event, in celebration of a global platform,
we created a museum that honored and celebrated the most popular emotes on Twitch.

The event received coverage on Kotaku and spawned thousands of posts across social,
even from some of the community members who are emotes themselves!
