The NHL regular season officially begins tonight and fans now have a new way to share their love of their favorite team.
Starting today, each of the 31 teams will have an official hashtag on Twitter that will trigger a team-related emoji. If you’d like to rep the Capitals, just add the hashtag “#ALLCAPS” to your tweet and the the team’s alternate logo, the Weagle, will appear.
Led by Christopher Doyle, Head of Sports at Twitter, the hashtags are an easy way to tweet about the NHL this season.
“Love them all,” Doyle tweeted, “but shoutout to #ALLCAPS for creative hashtag.”
