Twitter goof-up that has made the IPL emoji of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) appear as Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) yellow jersey has left fans amused, triggering a meme-fest on social media.

Last year, Twitter had launched emojis and hashtags for all eight IPL teams – a feature that restarted six days ahead of the IPL 2021.

However, the technical glitch has left RCB franchise and their fans shell-shocked, with CSK yellow jersey appearing next to their hashtags, instead of the red-and-gold hue of the Virat Kohli-led side.

Before the mistake was realised, social media got flooded with hilarious jokes and memes, especially between the fans of the two teams who’ve had a long history of the cricketing rivalry.

Both the franchises’ Twitter handles, too, joined the fun after RCB wrote: “Hey @Twitter, @TwitterIndia, looks like you need better tech engineers. Bengaluru is the right place to start hiring. #WhatsWithYourEmojis.”
