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 “random sample of real time, English-language tweets mentioning 🍑” 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 “like”, “ass”, “peach”, “badgirl”, and “booty” were the top five words in tweets with 🍑 (ten points to Gryffindor if you can use all five in a single tweet!😏)
The 🍑 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 🍑 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 🍑 have nothing to do with actual peaches.
Oh, and the most used emoji in tandem with the peach? Obviously, the 🍆.
So, what do we talk about when we talk about the peach emoji? Definitely not much involving fruit.
