Texting like a Canadian, eh?
Tim Hortons has rolled out a uniquely emoji keyboard, or EHmoji, as they call it. Just in time for Canada Day next Wednesday, the keyboard features 12 quintessential Canadian images.
Texters can include such items in their messages as a maple leaf, barbeque, beaver, Muskoka chair, heart-shaped flag, moose, toque, fireworks, Inukshuk, “Eh” in English, “Tsé” in French, and Tim Hortons coffee cup.
The coffee giant is also asking Canadians to suggest what else should be included on the keyboard by tweeting their suggestions to @TimHortons with the hashtag #TextLikeaCanadian. The most popular ones will be added on July 1 and in the weeks following Canada Day.
“As Canadians, we have a unique way of expressing ourselves, whether it’s our distinct cultural sayings or the activities that drive our passions from coast to coast,” said Peter Nowlan, chief marketing officer of Tim Hortons.
The app is a free download from the App Store and will be available for Android users by June 29.
