The peach emoji has had a tumultuous year full of identity crises so it’s only fitting that some research be done to bring it back to its best self.

The folks at Emojipedia ― your one-stop shop for any emoji data you could possibly want ― took a β€œrandom sample of real time, English-language tweets mentioning πŸ‘β€ and, well, analyzed them.

Why? To tell us more about our freak-nasty Twitter habits, obviously!

In the course of 12 hours, Emojipedia collected 1,618 tweets and then removed retweets to secure a dataset of 571 tweets. From these tweets, they discovered that β€œlike”, β€œass”, β€œpeach”, β€œbadgirl”, and β€œbooty” were the top five words in tweets with πŸ‘ (ten points to Gryffindor if you can use all five in a single tweet!😏)

TheΒ πŸ‘ clearly makes people saucy.

To emphasize the sauciness even further, the Emojipedia team took a random sample of 100 tweets from their dataset and found that 33% of tweets use πŸ‘ as a shorthand for butt and 27% have sexual connotations or include suggestive imagery.

Their research concluded that as many as 93% of tweets with πŸ‘ have nothing to do with actual peaches.

Oh, and the most used emoji in tandem with the peach? Obviously, theΒ πŸ†. Β 

So, what do we talk about when we talk about the peach emoji? Definitely not much involving fruit.
