In general, the most popular emojis on Twitter are those that express emotions and feelings, such as smiling, crying and being in love, or that symbolize love, like hearts. In the third place on the list, however, is a curious emoji: the recycling symbol, posted 936 million times on the social network.
In assessing the origin of tweets, you can see that the icon of the three green arrows is especially popular with Arabs, and is often used by applications and websites that automatically post Islamic prayers on Twitter, such as du3a.org. The symbol is used as a way to encourage people to share tweets rather than something to do with recycling.
